    Lightroom 3 Blur Capabilities


      Did anybody else notice that Lightroom 3 now allows you to blur images with adjustment brushes set to a negative sharpness? I was actually pretty excited to see this neglected new Gaussian blur effect. I searched the forums for something about this, but came up empty. I've been using the graduated filter and the adjustment brush with a -100 sharpness to simulate shallow depth of field, but today I noticed that the graduated filter doesn't actually make a smooth transition from blurry to sharp - it's a hard edge. That was a little disappointing because if it were gradual (as intended) then it would be just like the "lens blur" in photoshop. Is this just a bug or something?
