    Are the depth of field tricks you’re using here based on tilt shift or is it another technique? Would love to know how you do it!

    I guess they’re based around a tilt-shift look, but just whatever works really. That feet shot is just softer around the edges, kinda like a cheap plastic lens. The shot of the farm (top) and sheep having a chat (bottom) are shot with tilt-shift in mind, hence the lack of any foreground detail. But I think working with the levels, and colour balance does a lot to bring about some extra depth. That and there’s some lens/filter dust which fills that little void up front a tad. Basically: Option Q, Option G, Reflected Grad’, Lens Blur, Levels, Colour Balance, Separate R, G, B, curves, Maps (maybe screen a dark blue-orange), Luz in some texture….and crop your way to glory!
