    Wow, these prints look fantastic on your wall. Congratulations!

    Here are a couple of flowers with the Olympus Pen 42/1.2 lens:

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks Abbazz!

    Did you move the camera while shooting or is this the actual bokeh?
    Would like to see a sample without a busy foreground to better see how it renders.
    I can see a little of it on the last photo on the left. It is a nice fast lens.

    I didn't move the camera, I only focused the lens in front of the subject (it's easy to do at it has a minimum focus of 0.35m). This tiny Olympus wonder is also much smaller and lighter than a lens designed for 35mm. Here it is mounted on my E-P1 -- the picture should be acceptable here, as it has a large out of focus area :



    You can find a few pictures taken with this lens on my Zenfolio gallery but the first 13 pictures were taken when the lens was still suffering from a bad case of element separation. The subsequent pictures where taken after applying my magical heat treatment. And sorry for the off-topic, guys .

    Cheers!

    Much as I love black and white, this version I prefer. Not sure about the title though, the street below does look dry ...
    My title would be "Condensed Buildings"

    Zenitar 16mm/2.8

    I've just received my Zenitar 16mm/2.8 M42 mount lens, purchased for the Italian tilt adapter that has been discussed in earlier posts.
    I think this lens will be useful for blenders and bokehgraphers - here is a test picture. Taken on the G1 and at aperture 2.8.

    Thanks Leica:

    I did this on my mission of doing a "bokeh a day" in Europe last year. I thought that the Holiday Inn sign had potential!

    I travel again in five weeks and I'm setting the same goal - a "bokeh a day"

    Regards

    Hi Keith,
    Now I can see "HO" of the Holiday Inn sign. It is good to set some realistic and attainable goals such as a "bokeh a day". In my future travels, I will do the same ... As you do, I will take a couple of my favorite bokeh lenses to some faraway places planned for this spring. Best regards, Leica 77.

    Nice one! Can't figure out what it is, so that's good.
    Keeps one curious.
    The 45-200 has actually very nice bokeh possibilitys.

    Thanks

    The 200mm f/5.6 works OK but having the point sources of light at night helps.

    It is a sculpture made of rope lights like the stuff you use for Christmas lights.

    Thanks Michiel - yes, it is my Pentax bokeh lens.

    Taken at Sochi in Russia. To get the color I had to blow out a bit of detail in the trees. But, I like it this way.

    Cheers

    Super, Klaus!

    I like the square format and the double line bokeh (looks like the front legs of a mystical horse in the bottom left)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Might as well post it here (traffic bokeh) although it is more a variation on the first photo of the -No need for Noktor- thread.

    Good to see the image here, Michiel. I'm looking into getting this lens myself.

    Here is a "software" bokehgraph (FocalPoint 2) - I think the Canon 85 is in their library!

    Hi My Good Mentor Keith,
    This image is colorful, beautiful, and fantastic! It is certainly one of the best bokehgraphs! Best regards, Leica 77.
