    Silently Slipping Into the Night

    This is the fifth of my 'Mood' images. Fear not, I'll soon be back to normal…, I think?

    Relax a bit and turn on some soft romantic music.

    This is the first time I deliberately softened a sharp image to enhance a sense of quiet in the mood of the scene.

    Nice and quiet is what I see and feel. Well done on this.

    Another wonderful example that the need for sharpness is often overly exagerrated.

    Super! That is the emotion I was trying to evoke Bobo!

    Ah yes, Mike! Sharpness and blur are like tools. You can drive and remove screws with a hammer, but using the proper tool at the proper time works so much better!

    Thank you all for the feedback.

    You did it again Frank, viewing your post just keeps getting better and better. Hmmmm...intentional softening, needs to remember that.

    LOL! Thank you Joe. I think that this is the only time that I've done this with the subject so it is not a common practice for me. The slightly soft focus just seemed to fit the circumstances of this image better.

    On the other hand, although I usually strive to get the images sharp unless I want to control the DoF Bokeh, I can almost always tweak the background lens blur if needed but there are severe limits on increasing sharpness in post processing if it isn't right in-camera to begin with.
