Boy choosing a balloon in South Shields

“I want that one dad!”

Typical of small boys eh? This shot was taken in King Street, South Shields, it was relatively busy with people visiting the shops and enjoying a bit of warm sunshine. The Metro Station bridge is in the background.

The boy and the balloons have been isolated using a Photoshop tint and tone action and a gaussian blur on the top layer.

  1. The photo it’s absolutely great (thank you for detailing of post production) and the boy absolutely cute 🙂

  2. This is fabulous. The washed out (??) parts look so nostalgic. There was a Cadbery choc commercial that used this kind of technique a few years back over here – did you have it, too, with the balloons?
