I like the radial blur on this radial engine and the dynamic feel that it creates, at least for me. I think the composition matches the subject. I increased the contrast, toned down the light and added a vignette which, for me, gives it even more impact.   Posted: 06/08/2020 21:57:36

Depth of field has been considered nicely to show the details of the engine. Application of radial blur has added motion to it. In my personal opinion red tinge at left bottom is slightly distracting the color balance.   Posted: 06/09/2020 15:05:14

Gabriele, I have no idea what a radial engine is but I really like your photo of one. Looking at this photo I had assumed you moved the lens in or out to create the effect. The radial blur did a better job by not blurring the center and leaving it sharp. A very creative capture Gabriele. Nice!

Just popping in from DD78. Love this pic, and also the suggested changes. Can you explain how you used radial blur? Perhaps post your original to show the difference? I am familiar with the radial filter in Lightroom for lightening, but not aware of a radial blur. Glad I stopped by for a little tutoring!   Posted: 06/24/2020 14:02:25

Radial blur is in Photoshop under filters, blur, radial blur. You could select the area around the main subject and apply the blur. I think a more effective way is to select the main subject and put it on a separate layer. On the original layer use select the subject again and use content aware fill to replace the subject, then use the radial blur filter on the entire image, then flatten the layers.   Posted: 06/25/2020 20:24:28
