Photograph taken in my recent trip to the elqui valley , with effect tilt-shift, which is very easy to do, in PS.
1. Open the image in Photoshop and enter Quick Mask Mode by pressing Q on the keyboard, or select the Quick Mask icon
2.Choose the Gradient Tool by pressing G on the keyboard, or select the Gradient Tool icon. Be sure to choose the Reflected Gradient option.
3.Draw a vertical line; the start point will be the centre of the in-focus area, and the end will be where the transition from in-focus to out-of-focus is completed. This step, and the subsequent two steps, will need a fair degree of trial and error.
4.Press Q on the keyboard to exit Quick Mask Mode and return to Standard Mode. Next, Choose Filter > Blur > Lens Blur
5. add Saturation to your image, Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation
