This does work fairly well except that the blurred part looks like it should be blurring what's underneath, yet it's not, which can look strange for certain images.
This could be fixed, though would be slightly more complex, by allowing people to upload two images if they wish – one wider image to be used on wider browser windows, that would show beneath the blurred area, and a smaller image (as current size) to be used on narrower browser windows.
If people only use one image at the current size it would behave as it does now, or if they upload just one wider image it would be cropped slightly when used on a narrow browser window.
I think the blurred background to the left needs a tweak as it doesn't align with the rest of the image – rather than using the portion of image underneath, it appears to use part of the image right of centre for some unknown reason!
