    Really? Thanks. Even though it's pretty obvious that I blurred the background?

    I think the Blurred background really adds something to this photo. It makes me look at the little girl and not all the stuff around her.

    A quick trick to do in photoshop for blurring to add some depth of field is to...
    1) Duplicate the layer
    2) Do the blurring with one pressure and don't try to feather it!
    3) Go to Layers > Layer Mask > Hide All
    4) Use the White to Transparent gradient tool to add the feathering by using it on the layer mask.

    Bill,

    I love your weather and cloud images.

    Number 4 could do without the vintage 1980s pickup in the background, but it is a sweet shot.

    Thanks guys. I couldn't agree more with the truck. I told them to move the wedding to this better place that I had in mind but the bride wouldn't agree to the spot.
