Topaz Lens Effects - Bokeh Filter - Part 2

A short follow-up on my review of my earlier review of Topaz Lens Effects. I was asked about the effect because it seemed very subtle and it was hard to see where there is a net benefit.

I decided to do another example where you can see where the bokeh effect works very well.


In this image I was able to simulate some crazy 24mm F/.05 lens. Actually the simulation is exaggerated beyond any possible lens. I did purposely push this more than recommended, but also to demonstrate how well the selective bokeh works.

For something that is software based, it certainly does a pretty bang up job of simulating something that only more expensive lenses, a larger format camera, or only in my imagination can. For the short term, the special on $49.99 is a great deal for what this software offers.
