    Looking at this photo, with the way the background is blurred, in my opinion it looked more like a photoshop processed background rather than an actual movement blur.

    Can be photoshopped by using motion blur + history brush

    looks more like unfocused curtain giving the blurry motion line effects...

    agree with ExplorerZ, the oof highlight is still in circular shape, background is not motion blur.

    Wind blowing on the curtain on the background, the curtain is moving in and out, it is motion blur but not left to right or up to down, it move in and out. So you will still get the bokeh and looks a bit OOF.

    just find a blind and shoot at wide aperture.

    Very enlightened, sinned79!
    Thank you for showing this example.
    Now I have learned something new today.

    It's not motion blur... I've seen some wavy glass that can give this effect. But yes, judging from the clear straight line on the right side of the picture, it was probably blinds.

    The stuff you can hang at a window to block out the sun. Also called a windowblind. In the first picture, looks like the thin reed/bamboo ones that you can roll up.
