In the Neighborhood

I was standing on the corner photographing something utterly boring just for practice, when I quickly turned to capture this cyclist riding through an empty intersection. Quick without looking, too quick, as I swung the camera around I got a lot of motion blur, ruining the photo. Or did I?

bad photo + Photoshop = Art

I started out by trying to disguise the motion blur cranking up the clarity slider, dehaze, and contrast, crushing the blacks and selectively desaturating the reds just for kicks. Still not enough, I opened it in photoshop and applied a gaussian blur layer to smooth out the shake.

For reference here is the original:

And zooming in you can see the eye-straining shake in the buildings and trees.

Art. Sure.
