Hey, I posted this squirrel a while a go, and I just wanted to post process it a bit. Tell me what you think of the extreme makeover!

yellow saturation may be a tad high but that's easy to fox. it looks just fine..

really simple. lots of ways to do but the fastest is create duplicate layer > guassian blur > you set it, usually not above 10 > eraser tool, pick a soft edged brush > erase back to your original > flatten image. takes about 20 seconds.

this gives you kind of like shallow DOF. when you use it be sure to include some of the surrounding area or it looks fake. it works better on images that aren't as busy as this one..
