Leaf in the Sun
More playing around with tiltshift software, to be specific this browser based app - http://tiltshiftmaker.com/ No sign up, log in or pet’s maiden name required.
Control of size of in focus strip, amount of blur, gradation of blur and bokeh are possible. I think that I prefer the results of this app than of Photoshop CS4′s lens blur filter.
The photo itself was shot with my Lumix ZS8 16X zoom. Everything was in focus in the original shot. To be honest this was a bit of photographic opportunism. The early morning light on our sitting room floor was really nice and there was a plant container with some dead leaves in it nearby. From initial idea to photograph took around 15 seconds.
All of the blur and bokeh was added using the software app described above.
