Smoothed Away

Some lenses can smooth away distracting backgrounds with the click of the shutter. As a portrait shooter, lenses like the 85mm 1.4 come in very handy for me, because I can blur the background in order to focus attention on the subject. However, this lens also comes in handy with inanimate objects, like this wind chime, and can often portray them in an interesting perspective. *Image info: Nikon D300, Nikon 85mm 1.4 @ f1.8, ISO 400, 1/1250 sec.
