What Happens at Sea by Chris Cardwell

Another go at adding textures to an image. In this one I have blurred the original image, and adjusted it to give it an old retro, out of focus, been in the attic for years, film feel.

Taken with a Fujifilm SZ200 and edited in Photoshop CS5.

Exposure: 1/1100sec
f-stop: f/7
ISO: 200
Lens: Non-interchangeable, Zoom 35-210 eq.
