I shot this on my 6x9 cm format Fuji rangefinder camera, in Crantock Bay, Cornwall, England. It's part of a series of photographs given a simple blur treatment in Photoshop, that render the colours and shades in a way that feels morelike oil painting. Back in the days when you needed a darkroom to do stuff like this, I used to get similar effects by using cling-film over the enlarger lens or vaseline on a UV filter on the camera. Thanks to Photoshop, I no longer have to sit in darkrooms surrounded by noxious chemicals... or get funny looks from the cashier at the chemist shop when buying Vaseline! :-) (Smile)

Come to my website to see some more in this series: [link]
