Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Tried a wacky technique for "de-focusing" the foreground while keeping the distant stuff sharp. It kind of allows you to see through the nearby objects.
can i ask how you managed this effect?
Five exposures while stepping sideways at one-meter intervals, combined in Photoshop This gives a "depth of field" effect of the same magnitude as shooting with an aperture of four meters (but obviously not as smooth nor the same shape)! The tricky part is getting them to match perfectly so that it's still sharp at the "focused" distance.

There's too much in the way of telegraph poles, so on. I'm sure if it were just a shrub or something and the main object in the back then it'd look fine. This just disorientates me slightly... gurh.
Yep yep, have to find a better spot to do this next time... Maybe use more frames to smooth it out too, and experiment with adding vertical motion. Walking forward while taking the pictures also makes an interesting if cliched motion blur effect.
Good luck with it, I'd like to see how it turns out.
haha i like it! its like being drunk, but for free!
