    Still learning Photoshop. But since I cleaned my sensor, I don't have so many dots to play with

    Thanks Abbazz - it is easy to get carried away with these OOF composits. But the ideas that people on this thread are presenting encourage us all to experiment.

    Nice shot Keith. I can't quite tell on my monitor, but is there texture in the sky also?

    No Mike there isn't, but I wish there was. There is a texture layer there but I had trouble with masks and could not bring it out. Still learning. That was the one thing that made me hesitant about putting it up - let's call it "work in progress"

    Hi Keith,

    Hope you don't mind me doing this. Just wanted to show you an easy way to get texture in the sky. Flatten you image, if you want or just put a new texture on the top and roughly mask out the foreground either all the way or 50% as I did. Put the texture on top as Overlay.
    This just adds a bit of texture to the sky which ties the sky to the rest of the image.

    Thanks so much, Mike - that is exactly the effect I wanted. I think the blending options are giving me some trouble. Overlay works well here.

    This is the image that I was looking for

    Your welcome Keith. I find that Overlay and Soft Light seem to work most often unless you are looking for wild color or something unusual.

    Keith, one can look forever at/in this picture. From above as a vulcanic landscape, I see brussels sprouts in the background but at first my own translation of the word wreath was "wrat" in Dutch which means wart and that brought me to a sort of microscopic photograph of a wart, which was not what you ment at all.
    But anyway an interesting one.

    Hi Michiel:

    Yes - I saw Brussel Sprouts in there too, made me nearly kill the picture. But, believe me, there is not a Brussel Sprout within miles of where the original image was recorded.

    The picture started off as "Mosque Bush", posted months ago. This one is a composite of two images, both derived from the original.

    I was just finishing it when I learned of my mother's death in the UK. And I saw a wreath in there (circular arrangement of flowers, etc) - hence the name.

    The idea of naming these images originally came from the poster "Ranger 9" in the first few posts of this thread. He sold me on naming the images - it gives a hint to the viewer of what the photographer was trying to do. I think we owe it to the viewer to do that. Some of my images are not related at all to the name that I give them, but that's OK

    If Mondrian had a digital camera, he would be turning out the stuff that you are doing now. Your colors work so well. You already have a good series - keep pushing it.

    It looks like you are sticking with the original principals of bokehgraphy - just one image?

    I've been thinking about your challenge, here's my first attempt at a bokeh landscape

    Yes I like the pure colour transitions at the moment.
    That was just one image, but there are more of course
    So I made a triptych from the same session this morning. It will be nessecary to scroll a little but I didn't want it to be to small.

    Thanks Brian

    This reminds me of a couple of Mike Regnier's pictures which he shot through windows. That touch of sharpness in the foreground helps the viewer connect with the OOF stuff below.

    Well done

    "Looking down in Rome"

    We haven't seen too much "Street" Bokehgraphy - here is a first attempt (have to do "Street" in B & W). But this could be more difficult than doing Landscape Bokehgraphy

    Maybe some of the street shooters could help? Don't need a Leica to do this

    Keith

    PS - had a wonderful fish meal in the sidewalk restaurant in the top left corner
