An Impression of Noble Woods at Sunset

In Adobe Camera Raw, there’s a slider called “Clarity”; slide it all the way to the left, and the contours in your photo acquire a soft, yet non-feathery edge. The image becomes more dreamlike as a result.

But that’s not all. In addition to playing with the colors and exposure on this, I also threw in some additional photoshop work; among other things, I duplicated the original image, discarded all color information, added a strong blur, then overlaid that b&w, blurry image on top of the original. This creates a misty, dreamlike effect. Such a step can be repeated at will and adjustments made to taste.

Once you get used to working with Camera Raw and layers in photoshop, you can’t ever go back.
