I like the softened version of the wife pic. With the focus on her and surrounding soft like that, it draws your eyes to her face, which I'm assuming was the intent.

She does indeed
Only thing is depending on the day sometimes she doesn't mind and sometimes she doesn't want her picture taken.

Not a fan of the lomo.

As is, the focal softened looks too fake (blur above her head where the eye expects it to be sharp + same blur applied across the entire photo), But it would totally be my vote IF you graduated strength of the blur (left and right edges being VERY blurry, lightening up till you get to the subject) ...

Here's what I whipped up whilst playing with it. I played with motion blur and gaussian blur, along with a black and white version.



motion blur, color





motion blur, black and white





gaussian blur, color
(heavier blur than yours... a lighter blur like yours will look much more realistic, a heavier blur like this can be riskier, but gain a little more pop). given the two side by side, I would probably pick the lighter blur.
