Carl Zeiss Jena Tevidon 1.4/25mm @f1.4
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

Here are some raindrops on a black car, at night.
EP-1 + Porst 55mm @f1.2
I fully agree, VERY well done!
(I have the same lens, the original actually made by Cosina, I should give that a try I guess...)
A very nice composition with great background colors jkung.

Thx for comment "kds315" and "turbines"
G1 + IGW 50mm. Happy Thanksgiving to All Bokeh Enthusiasts!
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!
Once again, Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your loved ones during this festive season! We all agree that we have something to be thankful and grateful for in our lives. Through your stellar pursuit for fine bokehgraphy, you have inspired so many people and we are grateful to you. Kindest regards,
"Jewelry Store". G1 + IGW 50mm.
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
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 Leica77 and Michael, I started to sell this and my other 4/3s stuff but then changed my mine and I am now looking for a used E-3.
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.
I love it - nice to see a variety of new subjects on the thread
Nice bokeh jkung. Which lens was used?
great shots guys!
let my add "Fire Red catches the evening sun" to that...
