Default Re: Question: which is better?

Selective or soft focus is good for pointing to what you want to highlight, hiding bits you don't like or providing more information or feeling to an image. Like for example if there was an extremely long screw you could help to emphasize the length by having it fad off into the distance.

#1 is certainly better, not only that but part of what I find so interesting is that there looks like a tiny line and mismatched grit marks on the side of the head that's out of focus in the second one. IMO part of the interest is the fine detailed textures on things we often think of as smooth objects.
