Default DOF: All the Pretty Horses

Still playing with in-camera special effects, this was taken with a long lens at less than full telephoto, which causes vignetting. It's only a slightly shallow depth of field because I didn't want to blur the background too much. The graininess is the result of forgetting to reduce the ISO I'd increased earlier in the day. If any of you think these challenges might not be challenging me, too, you'd better think again. :shock:

Very creative. And nicely done! I do like the graininess but think I would also like it done in very bright colors, like marry-go-round horses.

That would be cool, Betsy, except I'd have to literally paint the horses in Photoshop since they're made of well-aged cast bronze. Far and away too much work for Babs Kadiddlehopper.

(oops - "merry," not "marry")... and after all that work, Barb, there's no guarantee it wouldn't look gauche. I've done some pretty tacky-looking things while playing with PE2! It really does look nice as it is - very elegant and understated.

Much better thinking--it requires a lot less work, don't you know.

I've also made some putrid messes while playing with Photoshop. Once in a great while, though, I do something that comes out looking exquisite. Unfortunately, I can never remember how I did it. Recently, I made a photo look like a Daguerreotype. Nope, don't know how I did it.

Do you mean Daguerreotype? Copy and paste it into Google and hit the search button. You've some very interesting photographic history to dig into.
