Further to this I did some experimenting last night on some runway fashion subjects.

I made the alpha channel, then used the quick select tool to define the model I wanted in focus (tried painting first and found the quick select tool way faster) and then 'filled' the selection to create the mask

Then in Lens Blur filter I specified the alpha channel and it worked wonderfully, with none of the ghosting I always had to repair with my former technique.

Now I think the lens blur filter is excellent! Is is still available in 6?
