The Setup:

This is Evelyn walking along a plank at the new river heart playground.

Inspiration for the shot is from here:

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 30mm
Exposure: 1/320" @ f/4.5, ISO 400 (0/3)

Post processing:

Lightroom 4 -

  1. Export layer 1 - B&W preset (clarity +30)
  2. Export layer 2 - B&W preset (clarity -100)
Photoshop Elements 7 (Mac) -
  1. Layer 1 was the background
  2. Layer 2 was the softer, blurrier overlay with 50% opacity

The wash-up:

Not quite as dreamy as I was expecting.
