Beautiful work; thank you for publicizing it. Another fun thing to do is take a close-up portrait at night with shallow depth of field and point light sources in the background; the resulting bokeh is very nice.

Great choice!!!

I find depth of field frustrating to use in SL because it is so hard to control. Option-Clicking on what you want to be in focus works 70% of the time, but sometimes my viewer decides to ignore all my attempts to tell it what to bring into focus. A solution I have adopted is to shoot two pics, one with DOF selected and one with it deselected. I can put the one without DOF over the other and erase into the blurred effect I want.

p.s. Thanks for the hat tip.

Thank you so much! I am so happy you featured a post of mine. By the way, all my works were done by using photoshop because I have a really bad graphics card in which I can't even use the windlight settings. I get my background pictures through another computer which is at the internet shop or my friend's computer and then I take a picture of my avatar with a green background and just crop it, then voila! :D

Anyway, I feel really grateful and happy to know you posted this one. Once again, thank you so much!
