"Javanese Textile, Indonesia". GF1 + Canon 58mm f1.2.
Nice bokehgraphs everyone!
Very little time for pressing the button this last week.
Here is one from the freezing cold in France.
Leica, a lovely shot of the textile, love the colors and the bokeh produced with the Canon 58/1.2! Outstanding!
Michiel, a really nice shot of the beautiful rose with snow! The Sigma 24/1.8 produces a bokeh which is soft/smooth while cutting a sharp image of the petal on the rose. Wonderful!
Thanks for sharing . . . . . .
Hi Dan and Paul,
Many thanks for your kind comments. The aperture of the lens has 8 blades as Paul mentioned.
It's a lovely image with a bit of frost/snow on the beautiful red rose.
Season's Greetings to all of you! Best,
Hi thanks my friends, Dan, Paul and Leica77.
Great way to return to the bokehdepartment after a break.
I'm really in love with the Nokton bokeh, especially the berries and the earlymorning photo from seakayaker.
