    Very little time today but I managed to take this shot at an opening of an exhibition.

    I loved your glass and bike shot above, really special.

    . . . . . then the Yarn, floor, color of door, and the bokeh . . . . . this shot is special! Awesome!

    Hi Dan,
    It's a wonderful bokehgraph! I really like the smooth background bokeh produced by your Leitz glass. Best, Leica 77.

    I had to close the opening by 2 stops for this shot.
    This lens is sooooo fast.
    I need to buy ND filters for it

    Lovely shot, Dan !
    I have the same lens. Difficult to focus, I find, and you need a lot of light to shoot handheld at that focal length.
    But, a great lens !!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Rafael, beautiful Orchids!

    I can appreciate the rain, it feel like it has been raining the whole month of May here in Seattle.

    . . . . . since I felt I was probably exaggerating, i decided to check . . . . . the results . . . . . .

    ************************************************** *****
    Seattle Climate Data -- May 2010

    May's 2010 weather for Seattle has brought below normal temperatures, sunshine, clouds, and rain after a cool, mostly cloudy, and rainy April. For May 1 - 29, there have been four days with sunny sky conditions, seven days with partly cloudy sky conditions, and eighteen days with cloudy sky conditions.

    Precipitation for May 1 - 29 is running above normal at 2.41 inches compared to the normal 1.68 inches. There have been nineteen days with precipitation.
    ************************************************** *******

    Yes, there was rain again today!

    It looks like it's raining all over the globe

    Dan, I really like this picture and the drawing of this Leica lens.
    I was just wondering what PP you use. I saw quiet some sharpening and I tryed some more contrast and a tad of saturasation. These older lenses can appear rather muted and can use some extra contrast.
    I did some PP on it in PS and could lift it up some more.
    Better work in RAW, of course.
    Just wondering

    Nice one Rafael, I like the black bokeh
    Do you use a black sheet for that? It surely makes the flowers pop.

    Michiel, what I know about PP today I could fit on the head of a pin.

    The process: Camera to Aperature, edit with Plug in Dfine 2.0 32 bit, Open in Adobe Bridge to Photo Shop, in Photo Shop reduce size to 10 x 7.5 and reduce resolution from 300 to 100 pixels/inch, save as jpeg, upload to flickr, post on DPI.

    . . . . . taking a class on post production is on my agenda as a must do . . . . .

    Don't know Aperture and Dfine, I work with Lightroom, but if you can find the contrast and vibrance sliders you are on your way. Saturation is very quickly to much and will make the boarders between colours harsh especially between red and blue. Experiment and don't be afraid of the sliders

    Michiel, taking another approach . . . . .

    . . . . . took the original raw, opened in Bridge to Preview, save as tiff 16 channel, then open in Bridge to Photo Shop. Made adjustment to brightness/contrast and then Images > Adjustments > Levels > Options > selected Enhance per Channel Contrast.

    The result .....

    Grass

    GF1 with Ernst Leitz Wetzair - Hector 135mm f/4.5 -- ISO 100 -- f/4.5 -- 1/160 -- 135mm

    Certainly more lively, may be a bit overcooked, but that it is a matter of taste as wel. I think this is already an improvement. What do you think?

    If you dubbelclick in bridge; do you get into the RAW workspace of Photoshop?
    It depends on your version if it supports your camera.
    If not, you can may be download the camera support for your camera.
    You probably need CS 4 for that support. I have CS3 and I can't download the G1 support.
    In that case you can use the RAW workspace of Silkypix delivered with your GF1. Works well too.
    I say this because it works much better in RAW space and make the adjustments there.
    And then use photoshop for sizing etc.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I see in your data you have a MAC and CS4, so it should not be a problem. You don't need tiff, work in RAW in PS and save in JPG . Tiff is a good format for printing and you don't loose quality each time you save like in JPG.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    This is the first test shot with my "Isco-Gottingen Berolina-Westromat 35/2.8" as used by Michiel in some of his Bokehgraphs (Thanks to Michiel for helping me locate one )

    The bokeh is very interesting, and I need to take many more images. I like the treatment of the ferns on the left side of the image.

    G1 with the ********************lens set to 2.8

    Congrats Keith, first shot is top of the bill
    So you did not have to wait for ages for the adapter.
    It was a little silent out there; I thought he must be up to something

    If you dubbelclick in bridge; do you get into the RAW workspace of Photoshop?
    It depends on your version if it supports your camera.
    If not, you can may be download the camera support for your camera.
    You probably need CS 4 for that support. I have CS3 and I can't download the G1 support.
    In that case you can use the RAW workspace of Silkypix delivered with your GF1. Works well too.
    I say this because it works much better in RAW space and make the adjustments there.
    And then use photoshop for sizing etc.

    Michiel
    Micheil, thank you for your advise and encouragement.

    I did go to the adobe website and did download the Camera Raw 5.7. I adjusted once, then twice, then three . . . . . I can see that over time the experienced eye will help . . . . .

    Anyway the the original and ......

    The Original 'Grass'



    Adjusting made in Photo Shop 'Grass'



    Adjustments using Photo Shop Camera Raw 5.7 # 1 - 'Grass'



    Adjustments using Photo Shop Camera Raw 5.7 # 2 - 'Grass'



    Adjustments using Photo Shop Camera Raw 5.7 # 3 - 'Grass'



    . . . . for now I like number 3 . . . .

    Once again, thanks for the suggestions!

    Life is Grand!

    Hi Keith and Michiel,
    The Isco Gottingen Gerolina-Westromat 35/2.8 glass is a stellar performer. Inspired by Michiel, I recently acquired an Isco Gottingen Westromat 50/1.9. The sharpness of the 50/1.9 glass is truly amazing. The bokeh, on the other hand, seems to be more pleasing with the 35/2.8 glass. When I have an opportunity to further test the 50/1.9 glass, I will post a sample image. All the best, Leica 77.

    There are a gazillion 135mm lenses but this is one of my favourites that I know off. This one always surprises me.

    Hi Michiel,
    This is a stunning capture! The composition is quite dynamic! The Zeiss glass seems to produce its great performance even when combined with micro 4/3rds cameras. Best, Leica 77.

    Do you use a black sheet for that? It surely makes the flowers pop.

    +1. Rafael. The black background (bokeh) is quite effective. Best, Leica 77.

    Great to see that you now also own a lens with an unpronouncable name, Keith ! And a lovely first shot


    Another dark and wet day, another indoor shot
    This lens has very stiff focusing, after it fell on the ground.

    . . . . . thanks once again for you kind words here and above on the 'Grass' bokeh.

    The 'Blue Flowers' did not have much bokeh, but I did love the shot itself. A very happy photo, at least it make me happy and brought a smile to my face!

    This panasonic/leica lens renders lovely shots.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    LAD Project Day #18
    G1 + Meyer Görlitz Primotar 180/3.5

    I jump from #15 to LAD #18 because I doubled LAD #5 and#15, nobody noticed. That's the trouble with copy/paste

    I had this lens for a long time but could never use it because the fixed contax mount on it was strange, it didn't fit the Contax adapter.
    Yesterday I put the mount against my big grinder and now it fits. I cleaned the glass but there is still dust inside. Anyway it is heavy, build like a tank and has 15 blades turning smoothly.

    Thanks Leica
    This was my first shot - I want to find a subject that brings out the Bokeh more. Let's see the 50/1.9 as soon as you get a chance.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Here is another from my IGBW3528 lens. This time I was trying to push the bokehgraphy toward the old style.

    This is called:

    "Plane tree, lawn, hedge, path and a road through the middle"
