As Jadrail mentioned, bringing the forward dof forward a little will help. Might want to move the rear dof forward also. As the bear is lengthwise to the camera, having the back start to fade into the background will integrate the bear more into the image. Depending on the focal length the camera is set to, this would be what would happen with an actual photo.
I'm so happy. This month as started with some really good help and some very good renders in just 4 short days. I was afraid people might be scared off by a technical challenge but I appear to have been very wrong. I am really going to enjoy the rest of this month until voting time rolls around. I can tell already that that part will be very hard this time.
Looking really good so far. Maybe a bit more blur in the background, but that could be personal preference.
I think that I have gone as far as possible with keeping the foreground and background slightly out of focus.
Further changing f/stop and/or the focal distance appears to cause the main object to become slightly blurred.
Thank you for Updating that Szark. It is a very good tip. Even one I was not 100% on myself.
Yeah no problem. I may not post much but I am keeping an eye on things. Just to give you an examples of how my days are at present, 10 PM and just turning on the computer. It is normally on before 10 AM arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
