Your subject is pretty sharp, and you have frozen the motion, but the background could be more oof. What camera/lens are you using?

I like it. I believe it was with a digicam (seem to remember seeing it in another thread - a p850 I believe?) so you don't have any more control over the background. So, great job capturing the moment!

In all honesty, blurring backgrounds in PP is very difficult. There are spots where you missed around the edges and you can see a 'line of demarcation' in the grass where your blurring stopped. To me, it's not worth the effort to PP the bluring and try to get it to look natural. Maybe on the one shot of a relative where you can spend 1/2 hour or so getting it right. Not knocking your attempt at all - I think you did a good job, it just takes a lot of effort to get this affect to look real and most of the time it's not worth the effort

You're missing my point. I'm trying to say it's not worth time to make it look natural.

If you think I'm being unduly harsh, look around the feet you can see areas you missed blurring. You can also see on the left side where there's a strict line where the fading stopped. I'm not knocking your efforts - just saying it's too difficult a task for anyone to do well.
