    Trying the Mohain > LP > Gaussian blur.

    By fuzzing everything but the horses, I think the technique helps indicate scale in this shot.

    Oh, cool.
    But you did not apply the last step, the "screen", did you?
    Which gives this bright shine to everything (which might have made this one way too bright and would have taken away from the blue blueness of the sky, I think).

    Took me a while to find the horses here, though, this photo being only 600px wide... ;)

    I duplicated the layer, then applied a bit of the blur- then erased the portion over the horses so that they came out clear. They barely stood out with everything in focus. Maybe not enough still.

    like it, almost makes it look like a model. The colours are fantastic
