Lens Artists Photo Challenge #237 – Bringing Softness

Bren’s challenge is to show how we bring softness to our photos. She tells us ” You don’t have to stick to flowers, landscapes and architecture are also ideal subjects. By lowering the clarity and creating softness in those areas frames the subject in an image, be it a tree, path, bridge, even a door or house or just a dreamy looking image.”

My first image is a landscape photo from Lake Bistineau in Louisiana. I used my photo editing software to create a radial blur surrounding the tree stump.


Another method I experimented with was creating a vignette effect. It seemed to work well with the pair of pelicans and the bunny in the following images. I used a radial blur for the deer in the woods.


My final two images are flowers softened with a radial blur.

Many thanks to Amy for her challenge Lens-Artists Challenge #237 – Bringing Softness

  1. WOW… beautiful images depicting softness. Being a flower girl… I just love those rose and those wildlife shots are exquisite. The radial blue is something I’ve never tried… I might experiment in Photoshop with the radial blur.
