These look really nice! Do you have any advice on your DoF efffect? I try using it but always end up turning it off. Can never get it quite right with the foreground/background balance. Hard to keep everything in focus that I want to keep in focus. I get it right every now and then but it’s largely due to chance... partially think it’s because the preview mode doesn’t always show things the best with this effect. Maybe I should do the effect with another filter applied? Hmmm. Anyways, great job and curious if you have any advice. Thanks!

Hey mate,

Just my 2c.. When I apply the DOF effect, I tend to do the same thing each time.

1 - turn on auto focus
2 - click the little pencil, then click somewhere of interest in the scene - usually somewhere in the middle
3 - crank the 'amount' slider until the entire image becomes blurry
4 - leave it cranked, and move the 'foreground/background' slider to get the right things in focus. you'll see a 'blur' move forward and backward. leave it at the spot which you prefer
5 - turn down the 'amount' slider so it's only a subtle effect

this tends to work 90% of the time, and has decent DOF effects :)

Thanks for your post muchcattle.
adamdiamanti summed it up very well. That's pretty much what i do.
Plus as a final adjustment, I sometimes use the "sharp area size" to fine tune

NOTE: Don't forget to use the shift key for fine slider adjustment.

Once you get the hang of it, it's an effect that has been nicely executed in Lumion
and is well worth it in the right situation.

I agree with BABE™ here!

The DOF effect seems much more accurate and perfected in this shot and the reflection on the pavement seems to be toned down to a better level.

Great work Peter :)

Peter,
That evening shot is killer!!! The lights on the apartment buildings in the background is a nice touch!

Well done - all the images have a great feeling!
