It is a combination of these two:
They were both taken on film - but "scanned" with a G1, so I'm still OK on the 4/3rds Forum ain't I boss (Guy)?
Keith, you're too modest in your knowledge of Photoshop - using those commands like paintbrushes is exactly what an experienced user would do. There really are three basic "tricks" to master playing in PS to my understanding:
Selections, Layers and Masks.
I don't think anyone could possibly guess that you used cobble stones for the texture - but it works very well.
"Swamp with Birds'
"Blowing Hard at Sunset"
According to someone I know this image belongs here too as the underlying layer is out-of-focus
"Fall Tree 5"
G1 with Lensbaby Composer
I like it a lot, makes a good combination!
G1 with Lensbaby
More dynamics; I like!
I added a texture to an earlier image I posted:
To your picture I applied another layer on top with a textured galvanised door and set it to "Multiply" and just left it like that (I would have set the Levels a bit higher and masked off the windows and door etc.), so you can see what my idea of the "grain" on top of the "out-of-focus" mix would be like.
I must admit it's not that easy to come to a satisfactory conclusion - but one must battle on, n'est ce pas?
Here is another G1/Lensbaby image:
"Fall Tree 50"
Yes, spending time on images to get the (personal) best out of them has been going on long before digital came along of course, the foremost example that always comes to mind first is Ansel Adams - there's no way he'd just print what came out of the camera, albeit from large format negative. A digital file is even more demanding in my opinion but then again with Photoshop at one's fingertips instead of developer, fixer, stop bath and all manner of toners to breathe in all night is certainly even more tempting to say the least.
One for the road:
This one is in Toronto: G1 with Lensbaby
Pretty cool results with the Lensbaby Keith!
Here some bokeh with the the GF1 and Nikon E 50/1.8:
These have all been great photos.

Good to see Raf (nice etherical flowerserie) and Leica (beautifull Raindrops)came back again too
Keith, great Toronto cityscape. looks like a very classical photograph.

I think this one was off the line....off my line... sorry am i off the wall ? LOL
G1 + Leica R 50mm Summicron. "Water Lily".
Many thanks for your kind comments. Your positive encouragement is always very much appreciated. Looking at other main threads in this Forum, many bokehgraphic images (at least images with nice bokeh) are becoming more and more popular, recorded by Nikons, Leicas, etc. You are certainly in the forefront of this interesting cachet. Cheers!
G1 + Leica M 50mm Summicron. "Bottles".
Lovely colours in the bottles, Leica. Glad to see some of your more abstracted images again.
Here is another garden shot
