Photo Doctor - Why are some people blurred and some not?

Dark Night Shot
Bright Night Shot
BACKGROUND BLURRED: "Portrait Scene Setting" makes the background blurred by making it out of focus
BACKGROUND SHARP: "Landscape Scene Setting" tries to keep the background sharp by keeping it in focus

BACKGROUND BLURRED: If you want to make a person stand out from a busy or distracting background put your camera setting to "Portrait Scene". This is usually illustrated by an icon of the Head and Shoulders of Person.

BACKGROUND SHARP: If you want the background to be in focus as well then set your camera to "Landscape Scene" Setting. This is usually illustrated by an icon of Mountains.
