A likely-looking bunch! Hope you enjoyed your parade.

Nice image Reidar. A bit travel also i believe. Watch out with blurring the BG. The blur from here to here does not have a lens gradient. And at some places I see not blurred spaces like this knee . If you have brushed it in PS you can make a big gaussian blur on the mask and than pull down in curves the white line end down to the black area. This makes the white areas in the mask grey.
But you did put down some friendly people out here.

Great shot! 3 on the right are Spanish - 3 on the left Brits? Nice shot of your missus!

I think I recognise this location as Altea - great breakfast at 'Lock stock' on the sea front!

excellent shot my friend , love the shallow dof too , can help but wonder if you had took it from further back with the wet fore ground if you would have got their reflections in the shot too tho :) , still your usual high standard of image, well done .

Lovely group portrait with nice serie of characters taken in street circumstances with effective post processing.

Thank you people!!
Dean you are right about Altea, but the 3 on the left is norwegian.

Bas: how can you see it is not a lens blur!?
It really is to much to learn for an old man.

#9 Reidar: Hi Reidar: There's nothing wrong with old people. And... what is the definition of old people?
Lens blur or the bookeh of a lens is not possible to create within PS. It is all about maths. There is a technical definition that creates the gradient of the lens blur and that has a gradient as told above. Blurred DOF is FLAT.
See my example image. Watch the blue spots in the image.
I have placed a yellow dot at the areas you could compare.
It's all about science. My vision is: "let the lens do his work". Specially when you have one with a great "Bookeh".
