Software used:

I have removed a little bit of the general saturation (Fig.22).


I made a new copy (blending all the layers below) and added a mask. After that, I accessed Filter > Blur> Lens Blur to apply a very smooth blurring effect in the volume of the annex (center) and in the borders of the image (Fig.23).


A vignetting effect was applied through manual exposures. In order to do that, I used the Alt command and created a new layer. In the dialog box (New Layer) I adjusted the mode to Overlay (50%). The effect was applied with a smooth black brush (10%). A smooth white brush had the opposite effect, highlighting the areas of light (Fig.24).


The final image can be seen in Fig.25.


That's all. I would like to thank 3DTotal for the opportunity to publicize my work and I hope that everyone that reads the tutorial likes the methodology I have used in it.
