    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Excellent bokeh-graphy from Jerry and Leica77 (don't you have a first name ? )

    Here's a shot where I am undecided between two versions : colour or B&W ??
    Please give me your opinion !

    Raf - very close, but the B & W does it for me
    The way those little drops of water get trapped in the web is a wonderful opportunity for bokehgraphs

    Hi Rafael,
    It's a close call! I like them both. Somehow it boils down to the beautiful bokeh on the wet spider's web and a sharp-focus spider. Each one (color and B&W) has its own tremendous appeal.

    Leica, this is an interesting one. Those little circular dohickies on the bud are also out of focus?
    My Micro Nikkor arrived, but when I left there was still no adapter. Have to wait a few weeks before trying a macro

    Hi Keith,
    It has a nice misty feel as the title indicates. The color is really pretty. I trust you are having lots of fun in UK.

    Regarding the last bokehgraph I posted, the depth of field was very limited using my Micro Nikkor 55mm lens (the preset first version). The little tiny circles are indeed OOF areas in the form of bokeh. I am pleased that you recognized them as such. All the best!

    P.S. I have just noticed that it is my 666th post!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Black and White version of "Mist Over the Lake"
    The mantra of bogehgraphy is "post process to enhance the bokeh"
    I find different challenges doing this with color and black and white, not surprising because we are dealing with two kinds of contrasts. I often find myself liking the black and white the best.

    Hi Keith,
    I am pleased to see the B&W version of "Mist Over the Lake". Ever since I became a photo enthusiast, I have always liked B&W images. In fact, on a separate thread, I just posted another B&W digital image recorded in western China earlier this year. All the best, my friend!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Leica 77, I will be going for another walk today trying to capture some more bokeh-graphs. This time I think with the olympus 50-200mm.

    Woodmancy, Mists over the Lake is great. I think you captured that Turner feel very nicely. Personally I like the color version much better.

    Klaus, I love the smooth transitions of the focus on your flower shots, very nice! I keep going back to look at them.

    Hi My Friend Cindy,
    Your images are wonderful! The bokeh produced by your Leitz lenses looks so soft, natural and beautiful.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I didn't walk to the store today, but I did get out and walk down to the dock's here in Seattle. I just used the Olympus zuiko 50mm f2.0 and the olympus 50-200mm zuiko lens (opened up the f-stop can very from 2.8-3.5). I am having fun with this thread.

    The last photo was taken on the walk back from the docks through the park.

    Now if I can scrape some change together and get a nikon f adapter for the G1 I can try a whole slew of old nikkor lenses. Even more fun

    Leica77, Thank you.

    Aaron, I like them all, but #4 is my favorite. Those are both spectacular lenses that you used. The Oly 50 f/2 is one of my favorite lenses on my G1. It is one of the sharpest lenses that I have ever owned, but has beautiful bokeh, too.

    Thanks Cindy,

    I have to agree with you on the zuiko 50mm, it is one awesome lens. All of my sharpest pictures have been from this lens, just amazing. Just to show how sharp, here is a poppy I took way back with the E-1 and the 50mm.

    Leica77, your "Hibiscus Bud" is a lovely shot !

    Keith, I like your "Mist", with a small preference for the coloured one.

    Thank you, this stuff is exciting me - I was visiting my mother in her old folks home and pulled off the road for two minutes to take these pictures. As you know, post processing becomes very important.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Vivek - that's a really good one.

    I wondered why it reminded me of "The Scream" by Munch. When I looked it up, I can see why - the fence going into the picture and the rendition of the sunset.
