An old pic of Times Square, New York. Manipulated with some filters and toning in Photoshop CS5.

I’ve seen quite a few pieces edited this way before but the one that inspired me is this piece by Trish Woodford. Thanks Trish, for the never ending inspiration :)

    This blows me away! BRILLIANT work….perfectly executed!!!
    LOVE this work by you Andrew! How is it done???
    Love that work by Trish too! :)

  • Thanks so much, Carol! Thrilled you like this one.. I used Photoshop blur filters for this, the motion blur. You can adjust the angle you want it to blur at, layered a couple of times over, some with blur, some normal image.. erased parts, faded layers and blended it eventually! I think this took about 6 layers to get the contrast and depth I wanted. Trish is an absolute star :)
