In the old days everything from nylon hose to vaseline on a filter was used for soft focus effects (not to mention special soft focus lens). Combine grain and a few of these tricks and you got a mystical sort of soft and muted photo. The question is, are they still relevant to today's market, or are they too retro? Here is an example:

I call this one Tree shadows on gauze, pretty girl inside, softly, softly.

Now no photo of this sort should be without a haiku to represent it:

Shadow of tree there
Makes a soft Autumn whisper ...
Girl peeking at you. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Cheers,
rfs

Always a market for beautiful images. It is not out of style to my mind.
