This image works better for me as an example of selective focus because more of the cat is in focus than just the eyes were on the treefrog post yesterday. But, maybe using a shallow depth of field (which I did again here with my widest aperture but no closeup filter) is just a method of achieving selective focus.
Camera info: Nikon D200, 50mm 1.8 lens at f1.8 and 1/th, ISO 400, cloudy whitebalance
Post processing: In ACR processed for more exposure, blacks and vibrance. In Photoshop desaturated and lightened part of the background, duplicated the background in softlight at 20% opacity, ran Bring Out the Eyes, the Edge for global sharpness and the highpass filter in softlight for the kitten's eyes.
