    What? Bending the rules? Hmm, this will not do.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I hope it's okay that I do some blending when I am doing a Bokeh photo. Can't help myself!!

    Of course Mike, happy to see you with some blending in the bokeh environment! Always like to see your work.
    Must find a way to do it the other way round

    No Michael, there is no blending of the rules here.

    I took out my calipers, magnifier, photoshop matrix, and figured out that Mike's image is 5% sharp and 95% out of focus. That makes it a genuine bokehgraph falling under the category of (see Post 450):

    "Subdued" realism. It is softened, toned down, and made gentle.

    At the last Bokehgraphy board meeting (in my basement) we had a quorum of one and the motion to allow a bit of rough paper background for our images was passed unanimously.

    Mike always prints his images on crummy paper and scratches the hell out of it. But there are earlier posts from folks who have followed the same pursuit in the quest for perfection

    Lovely one Mike - best to post here rather than that other B . . . thread

    Lovely one, turbines

    Can we see another with the Fokker Triplane (if there is one, at the back) at the front? How are these built?

    Thanks Keith. The Red Baron is down on the end of the line. A co-worker's daughter used Perler Beads, toothpicks and some white glue in the construction.

    I love this one - the diagonal composition and the out of focus patterns

    Well done

    Leica, love the detail of the spider and web against the green leaves(?) smooth background with the circular bokeh images! Very, very nice capture! Once again the IGW 50mm shines . . . . .

    . . . . . and thank you for the Thanksgiving Holiday greetings!

    It is not a holiday celebrated around the world on this day but certainly we all have something to be thankful & grateful for in our lives!

    Going through my summer files I found, among other subjects, these last flowers, shot almost this fall.

    I was just looking and saw - Juwelry store - coming in. Great one Leica77

    Hi Michiel,
    Though Thanksgiving is not celebrated on a global scale as Dan mentioned in his post, I extend my thanks to you once again for introducing me to the fine ISCO Gottingen lenses. I have had so much fun with these fine lenses. By the way, your image above taken with an Accura 35/2.8 glass has beautiful bokeh. Best regards,

    Thank you for you comments Keith & Dan. I really like the Nikon 105. Even though its a bit long for portraits it gives you some distance and therefore not so intrusive when photographing strangers in public places.

    Many thanks for your kind comments! Yes, I remember your beautiful bokehgraph taken in Istanbul. It served as a source of inspiration for my latest contribution. Thanks again! Best,

    Those are great. Just the right amount of softness with pleasant bokeh
