To avigur_11: Hi Yitzhak...

  • I'll let you in a small secret. What I did in photoshop was copy the original sharp layer. Add Gaussian Blur to the copy, and just lower the opacity to your liking, then to ensure the clock was not effected by the blur, I added a layer mask to the copy layer, and painted in black the areas I wanted to remain sharp. Then flatten the image.
    That's it....

    Thanks for the critique and kind words.
    Cheers!
