    Oops, got carried away there, sorry folks - it's not a "Bokehgraph".
    Michael:

    Is this a blended image? For my OOF images I go wild with the saturation, clarity, vibrance - whatever, controls. I use them like paintbrushes.

    Yes it is (I wouldn't cheat on my own thread!)

    It is a combination of these two:




    They were both taken on film - but "scanned" with a G1, so I'm still OK on the 4/3rds Forum ain't I boss (Guy)?

    Keith, you're too modest in your knowledge of Photoshop - using those commands like paintbrushes is exactly what an experienced user would do. There really are three basic "tricks" to master playing in PS to my understanding:
    Selections, Layers and Masks.

    I don't think anyone could possibly guess that you used cobble stones for the texture - but it works very well.

    According to someone I know this image belongs here too as the underlying layer is out-of-focus

    Yep - everyone will recognize this as a stunning Stage Two Bokehgraph. Stage Two is OOF image with other stuff layered on.

    We need more of these

    Now, I'm a dynamic kind of guy, so you know which one turns my crank. Lovely idea and execution. I bet the music sounds good too

    And I've taken the liberty of adding another more obvious albeit random and not necessarily ideal texture, this being a mere example.
    To your picture I applied another layer on top with a textured galvanised door and set it to "Multiply" and just left it like that (I would have set the Levels a bit higher and masked off the windows and door etc.), so you can see what my idea of the "grain" on top of the "out-of-focus" mix would be like.
    I must admit it's not that easy to come to a satisfactory conclusion - but one must battle on, n'est ce pas?

    Thanks Michael. This is where I have to go next. I ordered the book you recommended on layers, masks etc, but have to admit that my experience so far is limited to just blending two layers. This stuff takes time to do, doesn't it? I was used to downloading to Lightroom, making a few small adjustments and signing it off. But here, you can spend hours on one image.

    Yes, spending time on images to get the (personal) best out of them has been going on long before digital came along of course, the foremost example that always comes to mind first is Ansel Adams - there's no way he'd just print what came out of the camera, albeit from large format negative. A digital file is even more demanding in my opinion but then again with Photoshop at one's fingertips instead of developer, fixer, stop bath and all manner of toners to breathe in all night is certainly even more tempting to say the least.

    One for the road:

    Hi Keith,
    I love the image of downtown Toronto taken at sunset. You are mastering the use of the Lensbaby.

    Back again from work and no internet connection.

    Good to see Raf (nice etherical flowerserie) and Leica (beautifull Raindrops)came back again too

    Keith, great Toronto cityscape. looks like a very classical photograph.

    drxcm, That second photo has a beautifull sense of speed!

    Here is a view from France inspired by Mark Rothko.

    Two great images Michiel, and totally different in context. Something draws me to number two, because there seems to be a story behind it.

    Nice to see you back

    Hi Keith,
    This is a rather romantic sort of image -- right out of "Roman Holiday". Wonderful!

    I love the color and bokeh! Your fast prime seems to be an interesting lens for sharpness as well.

    Yes, Michael, it could be Vivekitis. The only help I can give is that I recall that this has happened in the past, and it seemed to be something to do with the internet service provider. They may have some crazy rules about shutting stuff out, country to country. But I could be completely wrong.

    Yes, I saw the lawn because of the dandelions. At first I thought it was noise.
    We are not allowed to spray dandelions anymore in Canada. Makes for good pictures when they are growing, but after that it sucks.

    Hi Keith,

    Many thanks for your kind comments. Your positive encouragement is always very much appreciated. Looking at other main threads in this Forum, many bokehgraphic images (at least images with nice bokeh) are becoming more and more popular, recorded by Nikons, Leicas, etc. You are certainly in the forefront of this interesting cachet. Cheers!

    Lovely colours in the bottles, Leica. Glad to see some of your more abstracted images again.
