Highland Cattle

I did a photoshoot with some Highland cattle the other day for an advert. Tonight I had a play around with one of the unused images and came up with this effect which I rather like.

For the technically minded I used Photoshop and created a copy of the background as a layer. I removed the colour from this layer, then applied a Gaussian blur. Mixed the two layers using 100% of the coloured background and about 30% of the blurred monochrome layer. Merged the layers and finally increased the colour saturation by about 25%.

Forgot to mention - the beast on the left is a bull.
