    Very cool. Maybe if the blur was a little softer would be better.

    you'd think so (i did) but there i found a paradox of sorts. the higher DOF you use and therefore the lighter the blur, the messier the overall look. When you create a lighter blur (higher F stop DOF) you start to get double images all over the place. when that happens you lose the effect of two focal planes and get a confusing jagged shakey looking mess. interesting eh? if you contrast it up a bit you can fight the blur. this one however i ended up liking better without too much contrast. i did touch it up a bit though and i like it a bit better. a wee bit-o contrast and a blue bump and a bit-o saturation.
