My critique of this is that I erased a bit too much of the blurred portion of the image. I may rework it sometime in the future and attempt to restore that shallow DOF.

Bob, Looking at this makes me dizzy. If I focus on the house, the background moves; if I focus on the background, the school moves. Makes me uncomfortable because I can't make the image stay still. I have an appointment with an eye doctor in November; I will look again after that. Matt

Matt, in reality the original image is quite sharp. The conversion to a web plate type appearance does cause a lot of blurring, using motion blur. Perhaps you need to get some motion sickness pills before viewing these. 8-)
Thanks for looking,
Bob
