So, I didn't get to take a lot of photos today, but I did get a good one of my dog. Problem was, with the lens I had on, the depth of field was too great, so the sort of tacky neighbors yard ruined to the picture somewhat. My 35mm f1.8 lens was on the way, or the shot would have been nearly perfect.
So, I used fake blur. Yeah, it's sort of noticeable, but I think the shot's better because of it, it's better than having the neighbor's house distract. Not my finest moment, and it definitely won't make any future 'portfolio' I'd put out.
Other than the fake blur, the shot was cropped, but not otherwise altered.
