This picture was taken in a (very) small town (Patones de Arriba) in the north part of Madrid
I've tried to simulate modeling..

- Take the picture
- duplicate layer
- hard contrast
- gaussian blur
- add a layer Mask
- paint in black where you want "recuperate focus"
Easy and funny.

Nice work!

Hmm. Not a fan of gaussian blur + masking for this sort of thing: Leaves you with a "transparent blur", which is very different from "less blur".
See this thread:

Post #6 and 9

Nice subject for it though.

Interesting....I'll check it
I've used this method 'cause I thought it was the easier and faster....
Of course I'll work with your recommendation
Many Thanks.

Ummm... Well, OK.

It is good to see that you are stretching yourself in the post processing department.

This one, however, leaves lots of room for improvement.

For one thing, why is the bottom of the building crystal clear, and yet the street it is touching is completely out of focus? Why is the left side of the building (the distant part) just as sharp the the right side (the close part). And so on, and so on.

The effort is valiant, but, you've bitten off more that you can chew and the results speak for themselves.

Take a look at this thread:

http://maps.google.com …loc=00049e12921​66f0b211c1 (external link)

In it, Rafael Polit (one of our mods, from Quito) goes through the steps of making a "depth map".

Learn to do that, and then you can start getting results that are worth looking at.

Good luck,

Rad

Thanks, I'll do it...but what can I do in the marathon ?
I think you made a mistake pasting the link...."maps.google..​......." no relationship with depth map.

You can try to run a 4:47, which was my wife's time last year. In between training for that, you could look at THIS thread:
