How to achieve this kind of "softness" in a details like on the image below in Photoshop? It is definitely not a blurring, there must be something else I'm missing. Tried a bunch of techniques with blur, but unsuccessfully.
Below are more examples of the details are wiped out or soften a bit (look at the mountains, grass, trees)..
p.s. Some of these photographs have an exposure time about 1/2 - 4 of a second or close to this, which is not enough to blur the details in a "natural way"..
This is a Rodney Lough Jr. Wilderness Collection and you can see more examples going to his website http://rodneyloughjr.com
Would appreciate any advice.
