Dog Dream

This was created by moving the clarity slider in LR2 all the way to the left to get the soft look for the dry grass and flowers. Then the original was put on one layer in PSE6 and the soft version on another layer with a mask so the dog and the upper background had the minus clarity masked out. The whole image is very soft but the local contrast is reduced in the grass to make it blend into a liquid mass. To see the image without this effect take a look at the second photo under fun dog.

Interesting technique Clay, it sure improved the photo, in my humble opinion!

P.S. Thanks for commenting on my smugmug gallery. Though we may have some in common I still do hesitate to shoot candids in the street!

Take care,
