These shallow DOF are not aesthetically pleasing in the first place. Instead of isolating, the abrupt blur is disturbing, very much like 3d movie panning with shallow DOF, and nothing like what we see in real life. I personally think that the fetish for shallow DOF has many followers who are....just followers.

Well IMO it's about "bokeh" not shallow depth of field, while you get better bokeh with shallow depth of field, the quality of the blur is important. And you're right the first image has horrible bokeh...
