    Michiel, that bokeh is delightful. You are posting images taken with lenses that I have, but don't use much - I'm going to have to change my ways

    Now you have worked me into a very long term contract
    I have to think about this. May be I start a FLAD for a week or so and take a break.
    Flowers every day with a different lens for as long I am near a computer.

    Oké, I start tomorrow at 9 and put it into the bokehthread (makes me feel at home)

    First one is very good - now switch lenses. I think you have 30-50 which should make this last 2 or 3 months. I and many others are looking forward to it.

    We have a good support group here, which can see you through it.
    I have to set my clock - are you six hours ahead of Canada?

    But do you mind I do a flower every now and then, too?

    LAD Project Day #2
    G1 + Voigtländer Super Wide Heliar 15/4.5

    After a hard days work , I found out it is very difficult to choose, if you have to.
    It is not a bokehlens because everything is almost always in focus.
    This picture did most right to the characteristics of this lens, as I remember using it on my sold Voigtländer R4-A.
    I thought I start with a lens I very seldom use anymore because it lost its super wide character on the G1. I keep it for when I run into a Leica

    I was getting worried, time was running out for today. I don't have this lens, but I have the 12mm, 5.6 and that has taken some nice shots. But, you are right, these ultra wides on 35mm are not so exciting on m4/3.
    So which lens tomorrow? - how about the unpronounceable one which occupies one sentence. It had a lovely bokeh.

    In these projects, constructive criticism is more important. My feeling is that a tighter crop would have enhanced the image. But, I am a very tight cropper

    I love this bokeh, ever since you posted your first photo, so I would like to get the lens. But I'm afraid that someone in the street may ask me "which lens is that?" Then I would have to say - "It's a **********************************"
    But a lens with a name like that must be very expensive?

    Nice, Raf

    We have no problem with images of flowers with rain drops all over them. Some people in this thread have also taken pictures of plastic flowers

    So we will take anything you can do - if it rains

    Nice one Raf:
    The rain drops enhance the image a lot. I guess this is the good thing about the photo-a-day concept, it pushes the photographer into searching for images, no matter what's going on. I found this when I was half way across the Atlantic with no land available. I did resort to plastic flowers for one shot!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Graham (grum) - both lovely. The colors are so rich in #1. I find that a good bokeh (talking this thread's understanding of bokeh) provides a better opportunity to put saturation into the in focus stuff

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Both of these are quite pleasing! I especially like the one with the foreground iris's and big color blotches.

    thanks, Keith !

    I'm not sure that I understand your question

    But, i'll try to tell what I take into account. For me, it is essential that the bokeh is "specific" to say the least. One has to take care to avoid the "donuts" when they do not help the image, or use them to the best extent. That's what I tried in this pic.

    Technically speaking, DOF is very shallow, so precise focusing is essential. Due to the long equivalent focal length, handshooting seems impossible to me, and a stable tripod is mandatory. The fact that the lens is rather slow still enhances this.

    Also, postprocessing needs some more contrast and saturation than usual.

    If this is not what you mean, Keith, please let me know !
