Final filters and effects
Now all you have to do is add that little crisp, photorealistic effect. To do this, I use Smart Sharpen (Filter> Sharpen> Smart Sharpen). On top of this, I add a noise layer to blend everything together: I simply go to Filter> Noise> Add Noise, and when the noise is in place, set the layer mode to Soft Light at around 10 per cent Opacity. I also stretch the image horizontally slightly, to produce something a bit more dynamic. Be careful, though – just like the Adaptive Wide Angle filter, this might end up cropping part of your image!
