    C U,

    I wonder why trees lend themselves so well to bokehgraphs? Beautiful shot, Raf. The rain helps too, I did one like this in Uruguay.

    I took a walk this evening back to a garden where I took some shots during a visit on an overcast day this past weekend. Tonight was totally different with a bright light from the setting sun.

    Lovely to see you here, Brian.

    My BAD project only lasted 30 days - you have further to go than that with PAD

    Nice street bokehgraph. If you get time try that little tilt adapter - let's you put a tiny piece of in-focus stuff in the image. I found it to be a lot of fun when I did the BAD thing

    Dan:

    This is really nice. The colors in the background work so well together, and the in-focus sun gives the eye something to zero in on.

    Taking a break from out of focus stuff - so this image should be in focus

    This is the Trevi Fountain in Rome, taken at dusk just after the lights were switched on. We always stay about 100 yds from here in a small hotel. The activity from dusk to early morning is incredible - this is a gathering point for the locals and the tourists. In one hour from this shot the crowd doubled.

    Going past infinity to get fuzzy images has its uniqueness (smoother).

    Those who have olympus pen F lenses can mount (hold the lens firmly! it will mount but is a tad lose) them directly on m4/3rds and get past infinity.


    My Pentax lens does just that. When I take bokehgraphs, I don't look at the lens barrel when I focus - I just rotate the lens until I get the effect I want. In reviewing images with this lens, I see that I have quite a few with the smooth bokeh, and others with the typical Pentax circles and lines bokeh.

    Here is the original dog picture, straight out of the camera and processed as a jpeg in Lightroom

    Keith
    Jonas, Lars and other interested people:

    Harold Merklinger has some interesting comments on tilt/shift lense and focussing past infinity in this essay on the Luminous Landscape site.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    I enjoyed the colors as well and found the picture very pleasing to my eye.

    Brian, the tilt adapter web site is here: http://www.adrianololli.com/articolo.asp?ID=3107. The adapters are lens specific. I use mine with M42 Pentax lenses - check carefully for the lens he covers.

    I think the discussion in this thread is worth reading: http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showth...dapter+italian

    It was Mike Regnier who posts in the Blends thread that inspired me to, first get a Lensbaby, then get this adapter which gives me more flexibility.

    You seem to be mainly a landscape photographer, and I think Mikes work shows the value of selective focus capability in this area. Check his web site and look at his Californian vineyard images http://www.regnierphotography.com/vineyards/.

    If you search the getdpi site for "Italian tilt adapter" - there is lots more in there.

    Hi Keith,
    Nice picture, shows well the attraction of this place and a much better shot then I came home with of this fountain. Two days later we (my wife and I) where standing at the Trevi fountain. Funny, we could have met.
    Amazing city, Rome.

    Hey Michiel - we were wondering where you were

    Next time we will do it - my wife and I were there a year ago, same hotel. We had the best sole and buttered spinach we had ever tasted in a street restaurant just near here. This time we went to the same restaurant, sat in exactly the same place, and had exactly the same waiter. And the sole was just as good - I got a lot of images just sitting at my table in between eating sole (some of my romantic bokehgraphs of dining in the night - Leica loved those )

    Hi Keith,
    Great image of the Trevi Fountain in Rome! Reading Michiel's nice comments, you two were there about the same time. How incredible! Several years ago, my family spent a few days in Rome on the way back from Florence where we attendied our little niece's wedding. We walked from the Trevi Fountain to our little hotel at Piazza de España, making a short stop at Planet Hollywood Roma for cold drinks on the way. It was a great Roman Holiday!!! All the best, Leica 77.

    Seems that everyone loves Rome! This is a wonderful historical, cultural, romantic, culinary delight. The internet connection is a bit dicey, and sometimes the electrical switches are confounding. We will go again

    Beautiful shot, love the 3D effect of the reflection with the bokeh in front, along side, and behind the image of your friend.

    Keith, I like this very much. Just curious; are the people in the background cooks, or part of some festivity?
    Looking at your glass in the foreground I remembered I shot this Kir-Royale back home in France.

    Dan and Leica, thanks for your kind comments, enjoy a Kir-Royale

    Cheers

    Many thanks for your kind words!


    Your photo of your flower is amazing, do you have the original photo? I would love to see the distance this flower traveled to reach its current presentation. What software do you use to create the image?

    Hi Dan:

    Here is the original. I was testing oof bokehs last year, and put this one in the maybe pile (didn't like that the flower and bee were oof)

    Processed in Photoshop with the Topaz plug-in set to HDR Pop, I think - and then some extreme movements of the sliders (hence "Take me to the Limit")

    I put one of those multi-square semi-transparent frames on it from PhotoFrame - it enhances the square grid pattern in the image caused by over saturation

    Thanks for sharing the original. I am quite impressed with the original and the bokeh produced by the Voigtlander 40/1.4 Nokton, just beautiful circles.

    . . . . . and I appreciate you passing on the processing methods and tools that you use. I will have to give that a shot and move in that direction at some time in the future.

    Thanks - yeah I'm pretty thrilled with the lens actually, makes lots of lovely creamy bokeh - never used anything as fast before.

    Notice the thin line of of focus running up the wall on the right
