It's been slow on the forum for a few weeks while everyone is either on vacation, busy with summer stuff, and I'll assume taking a bunch of images for sharing this fall.......we can only hope!
Being a somewhat recent member and becoming a dedicated one at that, I've had the opportunity to meander my way around the various threads and enjoy some of the really great photography, news, and insights that are shared here. I've learned a lot in the process.
As I got intrigued and then became hooked and sold on the leica digital M system I read a lot about "bokeh". As I read about it and examined the images I began to understand and recognize what it was. Could I describe it? I'm not sure. I think it was the wonderful bokeh that the Leica glass renders that drew me.
So my question is ( I know there is a definition for this in the dictionary, BUT) what does the term"bokeh" mean to you? Please share your thoughts, and put into words what it is you recognize in an image that makes you think of it in terms of "bokeh". Here are a couple of my image taken with the 50 Lux pre-asph that I feel render "bokeh". By the way, thanks Jack for talking me into this lens, you were so right! "It has a wonderful bokeh"!
