Portraits can be soft and blurry. Presumably if the lighting is evocative or at least OK. (This image of mine received 25,000 in one night and many faves. Never expected this - go figure)

I agree that a photograph need not be sharp to be very good or excellent. A lack of sharpness may create a mood or emphasize movement, change or tumult and be a conscious artistic decision.

Some of my "best" blurry shots are ones where I have misjudged focus or had a too slow shutter speed by accident. And some are ones I have deliberately blurred wholly or partially in post for effect. Makes no never mind to me. As long as the resulting image works I am happy. Serendipity, thy name is photography.

When I have accidental out of focus shots, I delete them, not post them. Surely most of these photos are not intentionally out of focus.
