Surreal soft focus effect

I've learnt a quick and easy way to create a surreal and soft focus effect by simply applying the Gaussian blur filter and set the layer mode to “Overlay”in Photoshop.
Here's my mushroom picture from yesterday.
Open original picture.  Press Ctrl+J to duplicate the layer.

Click on the duplicated layer if it is not currently active,
go to FilterBlurGaussian Blur and enter an amount of 5%.
Set the layer mode to “Overlay”. Here you go!
To merge these two layers, select both layers and press Ctrl-E.
You can now save your file.
Note: This is just an immediate result... you can do extra editing to make this looks better
