    Thanks again for the comments. The third shot is seeming to be a crowd favourite when people see it. The branches just have so much to say the way they are gnarled and reaching out across the photo. As soon as I saw the tree, I knew I had to photograph it.

    Even if you dont use an action, I believe you could get a similar effect on #3 by duplicating the layer, then applying a gaussian blur to the dup layer. Then with the blurred layer on top, set blending to overlay or soft light. The amount of gaussian blur will depend on the size of the image, probably 14-20 for a full res image, and maybe 4 for a 700 px wide web image.

    And, great pics by the way, luckydog! :)

    All very nice. I like the effect on #3 the most though.

    Just wondering, what's your shutter speed in numbers 1 and 4. Whatever it is, it worked perfectly.

    Hey Laser,

    The exif for #1 is : 1.6sec @ f/11.0, ISO 100, ND4 filter

    The exif for #4 is : 1.6sec @ f/9.0, ISO 100, ND4 filter

    The lens was a Canon 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 28mm (or 44.8mm in real 35mm talk)

    Shutter priority, Tripod and remote used on all shots

    Hope this helps :)

    Those are all very serene and peaceful shots, I'm gonna have to hop on the bandwagon and choose number three as my personal favorite. They are all good shots though, for sure. I kind of feel as if the last one though is a bit too blue, but maybe it just appears as such because number three is so warm in color temperature. Good work! And nice post-processing, I think the processing made number three the best in my mind.

    I'm the odd one out here! :cheer:

    I like Photo 2 best - ha!
    "Midnight Gold"?
    Oh well, I once learned a "dreamification" technique from Lostprophet, where you do all in PS alone, without any plug-in, but ... come to it I seem to have forgotten how that one went .. I can't describe the steps to take just now. :scratch: Oh well. Old age...
