    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 !

    Thanks Raf - I have never owned one, so I did not know what the challenges were. Time to bring out the wallet!

    This thread is costing me - I've already purchased Michiel's I s c o - G t t i n g e n B e r o l i n a W e s t r o m a t 35/2.8 (had to copy that in from his post )

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Just a little experiment in between with a Cosmicar 8mm/1.4 I found for 5. Have been filing on it for a while but still does not focus to infinty.
    I am afraid I will file the ring into two pieces. Well I'll see.

    I don't think it needs to focus to infinity - that may defocus you from taking pictures like this winner

    Thanks Keith
    It has a very strange effect indeed. Little bit like a fisheye while keeping the straight lines.

    I'll hope you will like the lens with the long name.
    Just say to the people in the street when you take a picture in a laughable position of an odd subject that you have to act like this because this exotic lens has a ridicolous long name.
    I hope you got a reasonable deal on the P6 adapter.

    Even yesterday a woman asked me why for heaven's sake I was taking a picture of that particular subject and I said; it is a long story to explain and she answered; I don't want to know.

    I hadn't realized I was taking inspiration from a photo called tower when I took this outside my balcony. Two distracting light spots though.

    Not too late for me, as I am a few hours behind. I found this tricky with the BAD project when I found myself posting two in the same day, and looking for stuff on the day after. I'm going to have trouble next year when I cross the international dateline.

    Love the picture

    Still very difficult to work with (for me)
    Normally this OM lens is very sharp and I would have liked the yellow flower to contrast more in sharpness.
    For the rest I like the result.

    Lovely, Leica. Very innovative interchange of sharpness, color and composition - up to the usual high standards. By the time LAD, and FLAD are exhausted we could put together a wonderful collection of flowers of every kind. Not too many flowers in my garden yet

    Hi Keith and Dan,
    Many thanks for your kind words. Your positive comments are much appreciated as always. The bokeh behind the water lily is an image of light coming through a tall tree reflected on a pond. The sky was somewhat gray thus producing a partial black and white background around the bokeh. All the best, Leica 77.

    This is called

    "Slip, Slidin' Away"

    75/25 bokehgraph I'm pushing the limits, should be 25% in-focus, 75% out-of-focus

    Keith
    Thinking again about it, in my head, this is the best bokehgraph you've ever done.

    It could be an ideal candidate to add some subtle texture as per Mike.

    I went to the sunday morning market in our village to shoot some flowers.
    Quite difficult to shoot with this 180mm lens handheld, a lot of non-keepers as a result

    Finally, I selected this one for my FLAD

    Cindy - the bokeh gives the flower petals a feeling of motion. The image is also very "painterly"
    Notice you are using the EPL-1 - how do you like it?

    Hi Keith,
    Thank you. There was motion in the flowers.
    I just got the EPL-1. So far, I like the interface much better than the E-P1 which I had. I really wanted a camera with IS in the body for using lenses like this Leica 75mm. I don't receive the viewfinder till Tuesday, so didn't use EPL-1 too much yet.
    I am going to let my black G1 go now. I'll keep my G1 IR. I'll miss the articulating lcd for flower shooting, but having IS in the body is a big one for me.
    Oly did a lot right with this body, but I would still be a lot happier if the EVF was integrated into the body like on the G1. The 1/2000 max shutter speed is a bummer, too.

    I am going to let my black G1 go now. I'll keep my G1 IR. I'll miss the articulating lcd for flower shooting, but having IS in the body is a big one for me.
    Oly did a lot right with this body, but I would still be a lot happier if the EVF was integrated into the body like on the G1. The 1/2000 max shutter speed is a bummer, too.
    If it's any consolation I think that after a while you will grow to love the external finder. I find myself picking up my E-P2 in preference to my G1.
    I also like the way the EVF moves through 90 degrees, and use that feature a lot.

    I agree with you that in body stabilization is very important for legacy lenses - I could not do without it.

    I think this camera is going to be for me what I had hoped for the E-P1. I was coming from an E3 and loved the Oly "look", but just can't focus in the bright sun without a viewfinder.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    So many lovely images in such a short time!
    Good to see you again with this nice plain composition Leica77
    Also like the "soft mini jungle" from Dan very much.
    And of course Cindy Rafael and Keith

    On the meantime I go on with my project.

    Michiel, I love the subtle colors with just the tiniest pop of bright violet. Your composition is striking!

    +1: Cindy. The bokeh produced by your Leitz glass is indeed beautiful. Best, Leica 77.

    Thank you Cindy.
    I found your conversation with Keith about your Oly cameras with IS very informative and I also think of this possibility sometimes.
    What I am a little worried about is that these two Olympus cameras can't carry heavy lenses till a 1000 grams like the G1 can.
    Well actually I don't know.
    These cameras are somewhat smaller and I think for example a Canon FD 85/2would be to heavy (around 800 grams with adapter) and to big for these cameras.
    Sometimes I like to use telelenses to and then you definitly want IS but the camera would be to small.

    What do you think?

    Red Flower with Morning Glory making a climb . . . . .

    GF1 with Voigtlander Nokton Aspherical 50mm f/1.5 -- ISO 100 -- f/1.5 -- 1/1300 -- 50mm


    Raf, your narcissis in the morning sun is stunning, sharp as a tack with a beautiful bokeh.

    Michiel, the purple flower and blue iris are simply beautiful, soft and wonderful, with a unique bokeh produced by each lens. Not sure how long the LAD can last but I am enjoying the show.

    It is really nice to see this thread continue with so many great shots. . . . .

    Life is Grand!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Some super photos here. Belated thanks to Keith, Michiel, Dan and Leica77 for the comment on my own contribution.
    As far as the lenses go in some of the more recent shots, I like the look of Michiel's OM 35/2.8 plus adapter.
    Interested to see a shot from Rafael with the Nikon Series E 75-150mm. I recently bought one of these cheaply. I have found it a pleasure to use on a G1 and pin sharp.
