Thank you again Linda, You already know who this pic is of. On the blur, its just out of focus a little. Frame your subject, then move to something closer. Press your shutter halfway to lock focus, and while holding it go back to your subject and finish snapping. Ya kinda have to experiment. I did use a Softnet filter to soften it some more. But it was a 2r not a white as I previously stated. On the background etc, check that bedspread. Same as in Cherokee Morning...This one I took only 3 months ago. #784168
