    And two more.

    The last one is actually a strange accident but I like it.

    Michiel, that fence is great - simple lines and composition

    I think the last one was an accidental trip of the shutter?

    Keith,

    how do feel with this idea:

    1. get the release from all contributors of this thread
    2. take all the published bokeh pictures
    3. generate the GETDPI BOKEH BOOK OF BEAUTY
    4. I would buy one

    We can distibute the book on the next Rammstein concert "Made in Germany" Perhaps we can do some live picture from the group in Canada again ??? Bokeh Pics of Rammstein while performing "Feuer Frei". I would act as translator....

    Okay, the last was a joke, but think about the book ....

    Ahhh . . . . . . Rammstein. I wish they were here yesterday for Canada Day - much better than electric violins.

    The book? I just keep dreaming . . .

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    With all bokehgraphs this book will become so thick that my coffeetable will collapse.

    But seriously, this would become a real big project getting all the original files, with permission of all the contributers, in one place.
    Some of them have not been posting here for a long time. Leica77?
    And, as for me, I lost a lot of my original files from the past due to a computercrash.

    In the meantime I find it very enjoyable that the whole thread is still there and developing in new directions everyday!

    Here are two with a nice, for me new, Russian mirrorlens.

    Cheers, Michiel

    Real nice photographs Keith! Those mirror lenses with their special bokeh can be a lot of fun.

    Here are 2 more with the Rubinar, which can be quiet sharp. (second picture)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Aaah, mirror lenses, you hate them for their bokeh, or you love them for their bokeh.
    I'm in the second group !

    Here's a pic shot with the G1 and a Reflex-Nikkor 500/8 combined with some extension rings for closer focusing.

    @ Klaus, yes, I am so glad I found this thread and enjoying looking at the images. I do have to brush up on botanical terms, I think!

    Here's one with the Canon FL 58mm 1.2:

    I hope these four guys are staying in Indiana and not coming up north - we are overloaded.

    I like the composition and the grain in the bokeh

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I have a lot of these guys with this framing. They where looking in all directions, so, I kept shooting until my left arm was tired from holding lens...
    I like how the inner 2 are looking the same way, and the outer 2 are looking the same way... ISO 640 at f/11 and about 75' away, very little crop, just a slight trim on the edges is all.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I agree -- green can be a problem. The light here was nice and diffuse and I shot at f/2 IIRC, which also helped. Thanks for the comment.

    Thank you Rafael and Keith for your compliments!

    @ M5-Guy What a beautiful German shotgun! Sitting ducks, delicious!
    @ Paul; beautiful B&W mimosa
    @ Robin; Nice green grass!

    Same flowers as with the Rubinar, different bokeh but a lot sharper wide open!
    Shot in 16:9 mode for a change.

    Robin, if I had to choose a color I think it would be green. Most of our garden is in shade and the only way to handle it is with a variety of shade loving plants which bring in a huge variety of greens.

    But coming from Limerick you know all about green . I love the "blades" shot, two pics up.

    Here is another Hibiscus. EPL-1 with Canon FL 35mm f2.5

    This is no masterpiece, but it clearly shows the bokeh rendering of the LTM J-3 1.5/50, wide open and at closest focus distance (38.25 inches.), on m4/3 body:

    Thanks Paul and Michiel for the kind comments on my Hibiscus

    Nice layered green bokeh, Owen - I have this lens and it always performs well.

    Michiel - I love the tilt picture, lovely composition and content. I was just getting worried about the time we lose our flowers and your bridge and cyclists have reminded me there will be other stuff to work on.

    Have you been lens hunting again, Keith?

    That Ektar renders beautiful!

    Here is one with your favourite lens from a mirror in a " poffertjeskraam ".
    These are free standing wooden pancake houses. Only the pancakes are very small (4 cm) and thick with lots of butter and fine sugar.

    Very unhealthy

    Keith, lovely composition and excellent use of light.
    Listen to my new album "The Drones" free on BandCamp. Visit my Flickr images, website, or blog. Cheers!
