    OK, this series is an arty take on my The Beautiful Game series.
    Let me know if you think it works, I'm unsure myself, I really like some of the images and think that some really work, however I'm unsure about a few.

    That is a butt-load of pictures. The blurry/soft feel of them doesn't do much for me....my eyes keep trying to focus the picture.

    However, #4 is my favorite of the group.

    That's not "soft focus", but actually "out of focus". Soft focus comes from spherical aberration. You cannot achieve soft focus simply by pulling a sharp lens out of focus. Soft focus is actually IN focus, with sharp edges, but due to the spherical aberration has a soft, dreamy quality to it. These really don't do anything for me, sorry.

    Out of focus gives me a headache. My eyes continually try to focus on the pictures and it strains them. Soft focus pictures are in focus, so your eyes don't strain.

    "Someone give me my glasses back, please ... and doctor, my myopia seems to have become a lot worse in the course of time!"

    Those are my thoughts, with each and every one of these.
    They do not work for me.
    The feeling of having misplaced my glasses is too overwhelming.

    Yeh ok I don't think this experiment worked.
    Think I'll stick with the other series.
