"Soft"

Pulled a lady stocking (nylon) over the lens to soften the image.

Great shot Maffe - and thanks for the tip, I would never have thought of that for a soft filter!

Thanks Turerkan and Rosie.

Sara thought I was nuts when I asked here to lend me a nylon stocking:P
Vaselin smeard on an old UV-filter can do magic as well:)

This is my submission - it is the picture taken before the one I posted in my daily shots and I believe is soft enough!

Narrow DoF really is misfocus except that there is a minority of the branches in focus (maybe too much for the assignment). Still, it has a good effect mostly, the photo feels hazy and soft, but (going back to the assignment) I don't know what we're enhancing because there isn't a strong subject in the photo. What I like best about it is the bright bokeh though. I think the photo conveys a peaceful mood and has some neat effects, but there is room for improvement if you feel like spending the time.

Ha, it's easy to critique, but I haven't made it through the second assignment yet, so take it all with a grain of salt. :)

I'm not sure if this counts - the out-of-focusness creates the effect I wanted, and I think enhances the emotional impact of the image, but is the angle permitted?
BTW, it's Harvey's Bristol Cream and Sainsbury's Multivitamins - nothing sinister :-)

twb: i think your photos are too sharp.. would you try again with something definately soft?

jagged: it is soft, but the softness doesnt give me any particular feeling.. don't like it overall. i'd suggest you to try again.
