In this photo I used a soft focus in the background. I was doing a photoshoot with a swingset because I missed my childhood... I miss not having a care and this photoshoot I was very happy with in the end. This photo I think says "Childhood, I won't forget you". I'm up for your interpretations too! I just hope this is what they mean by soft focus...haha

I like it. A well-deserved posthumous ribbon. I look forward to seeing more challenge entries from you.

The wannabe Goths could learn a thing or two from you. This is spot on Noir scariness. I want to see this movie.

Has an Emo feel to it. The message it is telling me is that this girl has outgrown the playground.

Very sharp and high contrast, not what I would call soft focus. Interesting photo though!

This is quite inspired and I'd love to give it a zaftig score. However - it doesn't yell 'soft focus' at me, and the format is really small. You can take advantage of all 640 pixels in at least one direction.

Sorry I don't see soft focus here & the background is busy enough to distract.

I don't see anything soft about this.

Well composed- very emotional shot but how is this SF? Guess it's just not what I would expect. Still a 6 for good shot though. Cheers.
