How to do a centre focus effect in PS?
Anyone care to share your workflow for doing a center focus effect, ie, the subject at the centre of the picture is sharp and as you go towards the edge of the picture it gets more and more soft. This effect is achieved traditionally and optically with a centre focus filter.

My preferred way is to create a new layer and apply Gaussian blur to it.
Then create a layer mask and use the gradient tool (radial gradient) to make the centre sharp and the surrounding blur. This provide better control because you can decide exactly how gradual you want the peripheral blur to be.
