38-327 Old Boots

An otherwise fairly dull image in colour that cried out for some high contrast black and white processing, in a similar vein to the lensbaby look the image was given some surface blur and then the blur was erased from the boots.
Great shot. Like the idea of removing some of the blur. Might try it if I get a suitable image

@sarahlth Thanks Sarah, if you’re using Photoshop apply a surface blur to the whole image then use the eraser tool with about 25% to erase the blur from the target area :)

Keep meaning to try a similar subject but they always seem to be covered in mud ..

@fbailey covered in mud maybe adds to the image Felicity πŸ€”

Nice effect James. And thanks for your explanation - you just gave me an idea of how to better use my very old editing program - and so simple too - don't try to mask - blur a whole image, overlay and use transparency brush - much easier!! LOL Thanks heaps!!!

This is so well done! Love the processing. I will have to try out your technique. I was looking at my boots the other day as possible subjects but never would have accomplished what you have.

@jernst1779 Thank you, this was I guess more than just the image subject and composition. I will more than often look for images thinking in black and white, in this case I knew the colour image would be dull but the detail within the image had potential and contrast to make an interesting mono colour .

Superb composition!

For an instant I thought they were frozen. Putting on frozen boots, half-full of snow? Ewww. Perish the thought!
