    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Tesselator.... many thanks for your comments. I appreciate it. And may I mention as well, those images you posted elsewhere of the birds with your Tokina lens were simply stunning!

    Regarding your 85/1.2, do you miss that lens? I'm sure I would... if I ever had one! You've done some stellar work with it.

    Paul... very striking hood image... cool stuff.

    Well done on another really nice series - simple in form and color with lovely bokeh

    I think any camera/lens combination is welcomed on this thread, Lili. I have posted stuff with anything from my Yashica plastic, m43, to my Sony A55. The bokeh is the important bit.

    This is another lovely cat portrait from you - I'm thinking of sending Bennie to you to get his picture done.

    Keep them coming Klaus - you are a few months ahead of us, and we need something to look forward to.

    These old c-mount lenses have almost a mystical bokeh - would work well in "Alice in Wonderland"

    Woodmancy.... thank you, my friend.

    Lili... cool cat! I had a tiger tabby like that for almost 20 years. I miss her.

    Klaus... the bokeh from that c-mount is fantastic.

    Paul... you and I are walking a very similar path. I have a metal bench in
    a roman temple (my 3d image above) on my property where I made some
    bokeh images the other day that you might relate to... complete with fine
    strands of spider web

    A wonderful, lovely portrait of a very pretty cat Lilly! Have to hide that from our Hercules, if he would see that (half bobcat) he make noise all night long...

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Indeed a very special lens!

    Klaus... that c-lens gives such a cinematic, painterly, dreamy look. I just love that!

    Thanks for the kind words! Indeed it is a film lens and that shows.

    Here another c-mount film lens, the Kodak Anastigmat f2.7/63mm (2 1/2")

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    For one of my previously posted bokehgraphs, I gave a little spin by applying Flexify 2. Hopefully, these images are not off tangent too much.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Leica77.... fantastic! The moment I clicked onto the forum page and your images popped up I said to myself "Oh, WOW." Those really are cool. You obviously started with some pretty cool bokeh to begin with. These could be great illustrations for commercial use.

    Really very special Leica77. As you know I am a great fan of abstracts and effects.

    Beautiful new series here of Don - like the format of your photos too - and Klaus!

    And a beautifull cat by Lili!

    I am still not able to post. Have a new computer now, but I am waiting for my ordered Adobe CS5 Design Premium.

    Greetings to you all, Michiel

    Michiel - please take better care of that computer! Glad to see you back.

    Leica - please continue to push the envelope! Lovely stuff.

    Unfortunately I won't be going to Hawaii, but hospital instead. Thinking of doing a BADIH series, but I have to sneak my plastic camera in there. My wife has agreed to help.

    Here is a guy at the bottom of my garden (CZ Tevidon 25/1.4 - Thanks Klaus for getting me to think about that lens again)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi Keith, Michiel and Don,
    Many thanks to you for your kind comments. You are truly my good friends even though we only meet in cyberspace. Michiel, I have not had a chance to thank you for your positive input to a previous post in another thread. I agree that my image might have been inspired by Walasse Ting (who lived in Amsterdam and New York in the 1990s). Don, your images reflect your love and passion for excellence in digital imaging. My mentor Keith, how are you doing? You can always visit Hawaii later after your visit to the hospital. Best wishes,

    Love this one Keith.
    The perspective, the lines and sealike colours.

    Sorry to hear you have to cancel your cruise.
    All the best of course.

    Hi Michiel,

    These are excellent bokehgraphs! I like them both a lot! The sharpness obtained from your Elmarit 90mm glass certainly lives up to its reputation. Best,

    After silently following this thread for about a year I would like to add a pic taken with the Olympus EP1 and an adapted Canon FD 1.8 85mm wide open in 2009.

    I just would like to thank all of you contributers for a well-dom of inspiration! There is a real development undergoing when the "tides" of different styles "swap" in and out.

    Please keep going!

    Michiel, your "Bells" are terrific! Wonderful colors.

    Hi JerryMK,
    Great capture! I agree with Michiel that this image has a wonderful atmospheric context. Best,

    +100 to that! Welcome Helge

    I notice one of our regular bokehgraphers (one of the best) is experimenting on 3D in another thread.

    He may be the first to do a 3D bokehgraph. We've done B & W, Color, Portrait, Landscape, Abstract, Street, Grunge, blends and much more. But we have not yet done 3D.

    I want to see if the donuts I get from my Sigma Mirror lens really are donuts
