Side by side comparison

What an excellent job! I like the idea of side by side comparisons. Perhaps Alfred could have a folder for side by Side altered shots. Creating the blur really help put the focus where it belongs. have you tried the lens blur in CS. It is even better than the gaussian blur. Dale

Only just got CS so still new to all the new toys init. But will look into Lens Blur as that sounds interesting, thanks for the tip.

Great post-processing, I'll try this in Jasc Paint Shop Pro, hopefully I can do it. Good job.
