    Keith, congratulations and thank you
    This is a great thread and it has a lot of refresh potential, because the hospitality to creative freedom.

    Lately I liked this one from Owen very much. It has humor too!

    And this one is one of my favourites, from not to long ago, from you Keith.
    Sensual flower with great B&W charcoal bokeh!

    Very nice, Hakkalo. I love the composition and the rendition of the foreground flowers

    I think this was Mike Regnier's first post. Evocative image, reminiscent of Dylan's first album cover

    Yes that is a great one, although with a little bit of blending but who cares!
    Or was it through a car window?

    Dan (seakayaker) contributed many wonderful images before he went off and immersed himself into the Leica world (can't see bokeh through the viewfinder)

    His stuff was so good, its tough to pick just one.

    Raf (f6cvalkyrie) has done so many good ones - this one is taken with the Meyer Trioplan 100mm 2.8, a favorite of many

    Some good stuff. I remember seeing some of these older images, before. Page 3, of this thread, has some images submitted from Keith, that I like too.
    Ok, here are some more low-contrast and noisy images, from me.

    Fish Jupiter-3 1.5/50

    Dramatic with that narrow depth of focus.

    Nice triplet Owen. I like Fish, but the title of no 3 really fits

    Taken at the same time - on this one I've used Topaz to further explore the bokeh of the CV 40/1.4

    @ Keith and Simon; What a lovely Voigtländer series!
    Good to see a Nex camera here, because I want to comeback here with the Nex7!

    Here is one from a skater in bokeh.

    Michiel, have to admit that mine, like Simon's, was taken with a Nex. BTW Simon I love the B&W of the little guy in the grass

    Cropping is an art, and Michiel your image shows you are a master at it.

    Carl - I love the diptychs, please keep them coming

    Keith

    PS What are we going to do if we start moving in different directions from m4/3? My GXR m-mount arrives in two weeks, and I can put my legacy lens collection on it. I've also got the M and FD adapters for my Nex C3. Do we get a dispensation from the admin people, or say "what the heck"

    May be we can ask to move the whole thread to Other discussions/ Share your images. Or start new ones in the Sony etc departments.
    What do you think about the Nex7? Or don't you want to start a camera collection too
    We need the best camera for our lenses

    BTW My picture was no crop but shot from close by and frame.
    Loved your dynamic B&W picture with your Nex3 with the Toronto skyline!
    Curious how your GRX will perform!

    Yesterday was 10th anniversary of 9-11 tragedy here in New York City.

    “Over the years we have also seen a more quiet form of heroism – in the ladder company that lost so many men and still suits up to save lives every day; the businesses that have rebuilt; the burn victim who has bounced back; the families that press on,” - Pres. Obama on 9-11

    From the Garden of Hope in Battery Park near Ground Zero, my bokeh tribute to the 10th Anniversary of 9-11:

    3000 people lost their lives, which is very sad and need to be remembered for sure, just one is way to many. In WWII between 50 and 70million people lost their lives here in Europe - may I also remember about that...

    Sure!

    And also it's good to remember who the instigators and profiteers were in these conflicts.

    "Wall Of Bugs" EP2 with 50mm Pentax lens with tilt adapter.

    I know this isn't the best of the Bokeh photos, but I bet it is the biggest!
    This is for a job that I am doing for the Federal Building here and it is made up of two shots of a swarm of bugs. It is going to be 95 feet long and will have other seasonal shots of mine that are 4ft square printed on plexi mounted on top of the wall.

    Oh my , I thought my browser had stopped loading. I'm scratching already. Can we get in a bit nearer?

    Biggest bokehgraph yet, but I'll see what I can do on my photowalk tomorrow.

    Here is one of the original shots used for the wall graphic. I did a lot of stretching and duplicating to get it to the 95 ft.

    The original looks fantastic!
    Can't really form an opinion on the monumental mural. Would like to see how it works out on the spot? It looks so much paler now.
    It sure is huge!
    Are you using dibond-printfolie-plexiglas?

    Congratulations on this commission.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks Michiel. Here is a close up, but only at 15% of image size. I did this image at 75dpi and then added noise. I did 3 of these walls with the same imagery, and just moved the images around to keep them somewhat different. They are all different color themes.
    I won't be printing any of this job, so I don't know how they are printing the seasonal images on the plexi. I'll find out from the designer of the project. Should be interesting.
    I am still waiting for them to finish the space with the last large wall images of the buildings, so that I can get a few installation shots. It's hard to visualize how these will look.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi,

    I've been away for some 6 weeks, and I'm really glad to see this forum and this thread especially going as strong as ever.

    So many excellent bokehgraphs shared by the participants

    Here's one I shot a few days ago with my G1 and a Heinz Kilfitt Makro-Kilar 40/2.8



    C U,
