Nice shots, triton3k - I reallly like "In Between the Lines"
Is this optical blur or did you add additional blur in PP to either of these?
First one looks like it could be done with a lens - maybe a tilt-shift - but second one seems to have blur all around the subject in a way that (in my possibly incorrect opinion) a lens couldn't possibly produce.
Anyway, I really like the first one!
