Hi Neve,

I first modified the exposure on the boat in the foreground and duplicated the Layer.

Did a Select All and then Copy of the picture. I created a new Channel and pasted the picture into it and used Levels to increase the contrast. This was further touched up with a bit of brushwork and Black and White paint. Finally this was loaded as a Selection.

Finally I used the Radial Blur in the Zoom setting via the Selection to partially affect the image.

Regards

Con

Between school and university, I spent a year in Thailand.
Though I saw much more of Bangkok city streets than landscapes like this!

Thanks Neve, nice image to work on!

Thanks for all the nice words! You folks are too kind.

Funny thing is, when I started this one I wasn't at all "inspired", but then it just kept on getting more interesting.
Happened before with "boring" flower shots that suddenly came to life!

Which means - Don't pass anything up before trying!!

Rô, you convinced me to give it a try!

Went for a soft, dreamy look. Used Crystallize and Distort->Ripple plus Hue/Sat to emphasize the blues and the contrast of the boat.

C.J. i love yours, though if you don't mind my two-cents, i think some of that yellow (of the boat) shimmering on the water (sunlight effect) would make it so much more spectacular, imho.
