Challenge: Soft Focus III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Location: Turku, Finland
Date: Sep 25, 2007
Aperture: F5,6
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/40
Galleries: Cityscape, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Sep 25, 2007

Taken at an outdoor museum that exhibits the only part of the city that was left standing after the Great Fire of Turku in 1827.

Loads of post processing:
3xGaussianBlur & Edit/Fade

I wish I could have avoided cropping the image, but otherwise the soft focus effect would not have been visible.

I like the feeling of antiquity enhanced by the soft focus. 8.

I like the effect. However, I feel like the photo leans to the left. I can see that the far chimney lines up vertically but the average vertical line leans to the left. In this case, I would probably try different slight rotations until the photo "feels" right. The photo would work better for me if there was some area of higher focus, but I guess that is the challenge of soft focus.
