    I love this dramatic rendition of the rose - full of pent up motion

    A fine bokehgraph of one of my favorite subjects - nice delicate color. I like the "in motion" series on your website (remind me of Mike Regnier's car window shots over in the Blends thread)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I was getting into my car today, when I noticed the reflections thru the open door. I picked the foreground flowers to focus on and then composed the image around the reflections of the flowers.

    These are really nice, Mike - movement without movement, emphasized by the focused flower in the foreground

    I couldn't get any detail of "Soft Rose" in Lightroom so I processed it a single image in HDR Express, which provides more contrast and also a bit more noise

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Mike, both nice pics, but #1 is my favorite !

    Keith, I'm not sure which one I prefer. Maybe still the first post, because of its nice warm tones ???

    Vreeke, very nice shot ! Welcome to the Bokeh topic, also. It's always nice to see new posters join in !

    Robin, very nice heather blue ! Which lens did you use ?

    Thanks! This is the Pentax FA 43 Limited, a gem of a lens. Colour shifted in post-processing to get what I saw in my mind.

    Thanks Raf. Your last two are lovely with beautiful colors. That Trioplan rules.

    The Rose was spotted on the edge of a restaurant parking lot. It was of the hybrid variety known only to me as "pretty flower". It may be Eglantine but I'm no Botanist.

    @ Michiel; That Helios gives some very smooth bokeh. Both images are very nice.

    @WGM: I like your Iris Bud. The background is just right for a simple subject.

    Klaus, your ultraviolet series is beautiful. Contrasting violet and black has always been special in painting and photography and your examples are fascinating. Thanks for sharing.

    Most welcome Michael, it was a rare find, it was previously not known that outside and inside were so different in UV... we humans can't see that.

    M5-Guy, wow, film shot bokeh ! Great Harley shot !

    Klaus, very interesting to the comparaison UV vs Vis !

    Mike : very nice combination of bokeh and texture blend !

    Robin, "blue dorin" is great !!

    William, beautiful siberian iris !

    Michiel, great shots with the Helios ! I must use mine more often !

    Hey Raf, lovely one. It is a great twilight lens.

    Real nice what has been shown here lately!

    No time for me for photography

    But I do enjoy hopping in now and then to look.

    Thank you! The FL 58mm 1.2 is a great find for me. I really like using it with the E-P1 due to its small size.

    Here's from a Series 1 Vivitar 28mm 2.5 (Kiron) with the E-P1:

    Thanks again, Paul!

    Regarding if it is a Series 1 or not: I was relying on the lens cap that came with it which says Series 1 Vivitar. I assumed it is a Series 1, I could be wrong as the previous owner might just have put a Series 1 Vivitar lens cap on it.

    The serial number also starts at 22, signifying it was made by Kiron.

    Series 1 or not, I am quite happy with the lens!

    @ Thor: Series 1 or not, it's very sharp. Your Nikkor 85 looks good too and I want one.
