    QUOTE=Leica 77;262332]Hi Keith and All,
    This is the 3000th post in this wonderful Bokeh Thread. By posting Keith's most recent contribution, we wish to honor him for his tremendous efforts to bring us to another major milestone! x 1000.
    [/QUOTE]

    You're very good in watching the numbers Leica77

    It sure is worth another congratulation at our inspirator Keith with a small chance of spoiling him

    Here is another one from my garden from a few weeks ago.
    (Watch that face in the background Brrrrr.....)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks ever so much, Leica and Michiel

    I looked through the entire thread over the weekend, to make sure I was not double posting my Ibiza shot - boy, there is some wonderful stuff in there from a load of talented bokehgraphers

    I follow Mike Johnston's excellent photography blog (the onlinephotographer). He has a recent comment on bokeh, and shows a couple of nice bokehgraphs by Cindy Loughridge. Its worth reading Mikes comments - maybe I will e-mail him about our efforts.
    (http://theonlinephotographer.typepad...log_index.html) - scroll down a bit to get to the post

    Michiel - its not me in your picture

    Thanks, again

    Keith

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Keith, you are right about the waterfall shot, not abstract at all . . . . . it looks like it was the original photograph, then again with a few more twist & turns, or perhaps a crop or two and there may be something else that lies within . . . . .

    +++4 regarding the comments from Leica and the 3000 posts, a nice milestone for the bokehgraph thread, but I think we have just begun, and miles to go before we sleep!

    Michiel, love the Red & Green bokehgraph produced with the Meyer Gorlitz Trioplan 7.5cm f2.8!

    You know that could be Keith in the photo . . . . .


    . . . . . you know, ah . . . Keith Richards


    Klaus, ++1 regarding Keith comments, great bokeh with the Makro Switar 75mm and Steinheil Quinon 25mm! . . . . . with one exception, I really do love "DIAGONALS" made with the Makro Switar 75mm over the shot with the 25mm. (It could be that I am influenced by shooting with the CV 75/1.8 and the CV 25/0.95 and I am liking the results better with the 75/1.8 so far) . . . . . Patience and Time!


    Life is Grand!

    Hi Dan,
    Many thanks for your kind comments! I am slowly finding the sweet spot with my IGW 50mm ... BTW, your new Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f0.95 appears to produce very fine smooth bokeh. Best,

    Imagine the sun was shining on this one!
    Congrats Dan with your new lens!
    It can be a very good sign that it takes time to get those extreme fast lenses under control.
    Can you imagine I didn't like the Canon FD L85/1.2 much at the very beginning shooting with it?

    BTW It is very good for grown up man to read poetry (My father was a poet)

    Good luck with your further explorations of this lens!

    (BTW I never sad it was our Keith in the green background )

    @Klaus; Great rainbow! Was that an inner lens effect?
    @ Leica77 Lovely coloured bokehgraphs!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks Dan, for posting a fine picture of my hero:

    Keith Richards and I differ by just one month in age. I first saw him when I was 20 years old. He was in a beaten up Bedford van with the rest of the Stones. I was in line to see the show at a local dance hall - they didn't know where to unload their stuff.

    Seen him many times since then, and I am half way through his autobiography.

    Regards

    Keith

    @Michiel, Keith, Leica, Dan - truly wonderful shots!!

    Leica, the Orchid shots turned out mystical with this "golden bokeh"

    Dan, congrats to the new 0.95/25mm Nokton, looks VERY promising!

    Michiel, I was indeed using on purpose some inner lens refraction.

    Keith, your welcome, but Michiel deserves all the credit, all I did was remove the Fuchsia and bring the image into focus and KR appeared!


    . . . . . great to hear that you have had the opportunity to see Keith on several occasions. Only got to see the stones once, and my seat was far, far away from the stage. From my vantage point that evening, and I believe I was pretty lit up that night, it could have been a cover band and I wouldn't have know the difference!

    Michiel, the two shots from the flea market are wonderful! Great color and bokeh produced with the Konica Hexanon 40/1.8!

    Klaus, the shot with the rings is intriguing! How did you create the shot?

    I am having fun with the 25/0.95 combined with the GF1 but still need to take a lot more photographs before I begin to feel comfortable shooting with this lens wide open. . . . . . narrow DOF!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    So many excellent bokehgraphs in this topic.
    I feared that the "end of summer" would mean a decrease in frequency of bokehgraphs.
    I'm glad this isn't the case

    Another new lens has found it's way to my home.
    Bought together with a goodlooking "Moscow 1980" Olympics ZENIT camera, for 25 Euro

    So, it's time to update my FLAD

    To Dan

    Here is a book with poems in English you can buy at Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/Formentera-Gar...9927382&sr=1-1

    Here is one of his poems:

    Light at Sea

    in regard to that
    single light at sea
    a ship
    all stars are standing still
    unless they're falling

    deluded by the light
    of the single star already
    fallen for ages and still
    visible
    to the naked eye

    seeing what's not there
    because it is still there

    so too is man falling

    single light at sea
    a ship
    all stars are standing still
    unless they're falling
    deluded by the light

    to the naked eye
    seeing what's not there
    because it is still there
    so too is man falling
    in a blink of the eyes
    into eternity

    Greetings, Michiel
    Hi Michiel,
    It is a lovely poem by your father, Bert Schierbeek. Have you visited Suzhou in your travels to the Orient? The day I visited Suzhou a few years ago with a friend from Shanghai, it rained a bit and it brought out the brilliant colors of all the beautiful trees and flowers around the lake there. The view of Suzhou from a pagoda built in the 12th century was unforgettable. The architectural beauty of the pagoda itself fascinated me as well. Thanks for sharing one of your father's lovely poems. Best,

    thanks for your comment, Michiel !!

    Unbelievable but true, Michiel, they are in my garden.
    In fact, those are miniature roses, the same ones that I shot in springtime with the sinar (sooooo many posts ago )
    They go almost all year long, I have even made pictures of them with snow on the flowers ...

    The Helios is a nice lens, that you can find for not a lot of money, Michiel !

    Thanks Michiel for the link and for the poem.

    I ordered the book from Amazon and look forward to its arrival. They stated one left in inventory and 5 to 8 days for shipping.


    Rafael, wonderful roses! I found a couple myself on Sunday while out for a walk on a rainy day!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Gosh - its tough to keep up with the superb images flowing in:

    Dan - "Japanese Maple" is stunning. You've convinced me that I have to have this lens. Your "shuttle bus tree" is almost a 100% bokehgraph - you are moving further toward the edge Let's see one where nothing is in focus?

    Klaus - "Wilting" shows up the incredible performance of Kinoptik. I love it

    Raf - Your rose picture is so minimalist and delicate - it is wonderful how focus on out-of-focus create such lovely pictures.

    Congrats to everyone

    Keith

    . . . . . Keith, thanks for your kind words regarding the Japanese Maple Bokehgraph!

    I may have jumped over the edge with this one but you did say, "Let's see one where nothing is in focus?"

    Dan, I think you have just single handedly sold me on the Nokton 25mm f/0.95. Those are stunning images. I really enjoyed the Japanese Maple and the Fern.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Amin, Klaus, Jack & Wyip, all I can say is WOW!

    Thanks for the kind words regarding the bokehgraphs!

    This lens is special and I am very happy that I sent in my deposit to Stephen at Cameraquest when Voigtlander announced the release of the micro four/thirds mount. I have been vey pleased with all the Voightlander lens that I have tried with my GF1 and it is nice to be using one without an adaptor! Anyone who picks up the Nokton 25/0.95 will not be disappointed, of course it is JMHO . . . . .


    . . . . . anyway, Keith through out the challenge the other day with the comment, "Let's see one where nothing is in focus?," and thought I would give it another shot.

    Hey, well done Dan. A beautiful "early style" bokehgraph. This style works very well in some landscape, or skyscape situations.

    I love the tomato tin - we're getting into Andy Warhol territory
