You capture them with an A55, OK...
but, what did you do them with Photoshop?
I like the second shot.

The first photo I blurred the background and brightened the yellow on the tractor.

I sharpened the second and made the colors more vivid and cropped.

OK, but I wouldn't call little sharpening "post processing" but enhance better, the girl's shot is very well done and composed so it needed almost no polish.

In the tractor shot I consider "selective focusing" is very difficult to manage due one has to simulate the lens DOF performance correctly without leaving trails and it's not so easy to be done. Blur factor has to be progressively increased in superposed steps, according with distances, if applied only once to the whole background it won't look consistent with the rest of the image, that's what I found strange in it.

Yes, but it gave it a 'diorama' type of effect. It made the tractor almost look like a child's toy. I think I like it.

Thank you. I was going for something different to see what Photoshop will do for me. I kind of wanted to frame it with the background also.
