Would you believe that's straight out of the camera? (Well after RAW conversion, that is). I have found the Sigma 50mm macro to something of an unexpected gem in creating this soft, glowing OOF areas. Still coming to terms with this lens so this was something of an exercise AFAIC. Glad to see you appreciate it!
