Pretty shots Boily. I read about a Photoshop technique which can enhance fall shots like this. I was going to try it myself if I can get through my lengthy "Honey do" list. This is it verbatim:

Step 1: Open the photo to which you want to apply a soft focus effect. Duplicate the Background layer by pressing Command-J (PC: Control-J). By default, this duplicate layer is named Layer 1.

Step 2: Go under the Filter menu, under Blur, and choose Gaussian Blur. For high-res images, enter about 20 pixels (for low-res images, try 6-10 pixels instead) and click OK.

Step 3: That amount of Gaussian Blur will blur the entire image so much that it'll be hard to see any detail. So, to bring back the detail, go to the Layers palette and lower the Opacity setting of this blurred layer to 50%.

Step 4: Lowering the Opacity setting allows the detail to come back, but along with it comes a soft glow that gives the image a dreamy, almost painted look, which completes the effect.
