I recently set out to take some photographs during the "golden hour".  Living in Athens, GA has its benefits for sure, one of them being the quantity of locations available for shooting.  Between the barns, trees, ponds, lakes, rivers, etc. that surround the city, finding the location is never the hard part, it's finding the time to go out.  I took this shot in a field on the west side of town, and focused on the vegetation in the foreground while blurring the trees in the distance.  The natural lighting in the shot was great, and no post-production work was done.  Overall, it turned out to be a pretty fun shoot.
