Blurred out backgrounds. Band-aids for boring subjects and photography?

    Pretty much, in a lot of cases. Poor portraits and mediocre subjects, isolated from their surroundings might be the worst thing for them! The mediocrity could spawn a new branch of photography, where deep depth of field provides something interesting for the viewer to look at, instead of the subject.

    It could be bigfoot in a known location, but would be a much better shot
    if bigfoot was in focus, even if the location was unknown.
    How did I get to posting nonsense like this?
    Oh - that's right - someone responded to a RichA post...

    but the whole legs have been cut off so no way of identifing the size of its feet.

    Well it is Monday.

    A small foot print was found in Norfolk UK.

    I thought that was an appropriate response to Rich's post.
    ....and my tongue was wedged firmly in my cheek.

    And even if we weren't sure you'd never f*** up a shot of El Capitán that way,
    we can see that the foreground figure was photoshopped in. ;^)

    Actually it wasn't. That is my cousin's grandson who was sitting on the
    wall at Tunnel View. It was his first trip out to California, so I took
    him on the grand tour. That was for him an "I was there" tourista
    evidence shot.
