I don't understand the fascination with blurry pictures. OK, once in a while it can be appealing, but a steady diet of soft, gooey stuff will make people sick. A bit of crunch and hot pepper here and there are a lot more appetizing.

The photographic problem I have is more often too little DOF. Consider closeup or macro work. In nature photography, and portraits, I'd much rather situate the subject or find a better angle, than resort to blurring the background to abstraction.

Despite what you may think there many types pf photographs where a narrow DOF with pleasingly blurred back ground are desirable. It may not be important to you but it is important to many others. You do things your way and let others do things their way.

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
