Cool. It almost looks like it has a lensbaby effect.

Good use of limited DOF.

I can see that it is a very shallow DOF, but from the picture I am not sure why.

Gaussian blur maybe?

The areas above the subject are OOF too, which makes me think it was photoshopped.

Thanks for all your comments, good guess but it was "lens blur" I used Gaussian but this option worked better. I feathered the edge and selected the object and inverted it, the lens did do a nice job of the DoF but I just added a bit more :)

Ah, that's what confused me, then. It just didn't feel like a normal shallow DOF, but I couldn't put my finger on it.
