    Not so much grain, blotch, etc, I am afraid (if that is what is meant by "Boken").

    Here is a "Boket" shot of mine with no details.

    Boken: The Out of Focus areas of the image. Grain/Noise may be a factor at high ISOs. Lenses tend to have a signature boken by manufacture. The wider open f/stop you shoot at, the greater the Out of Focus background areas are less defined. (At a close focused object)

    Nice capture btw

    I figured that it might be something to do with "Bokeh".

    M5-guy, I am not sure how good your monitor is in showing darker shades. The second shot you have here has lots of black blotches. Any idea what they are?

    A few from the archives.

    5DMkII & 100mm macro (the old non-L version).







    And this one was with the 40D & 100mm macro:

    Re: Show Us Your Boken - Any Camera -

    I will add a few more old snaps as well.

    One of my all time favorite snaps.



    Nikon D40x, a 28mm T/S lens

    This sort shots are the very reason why I jumped at mirrorless cams with liveview and swivel screens. But, alas, that has not helped me to make such shots at all (I guess there still a few lenses missing in my m4/3rds line up..)



    Epson R-D1s, Canon 50/0.95



    Epson R-D1s, Canon 50/0.95



    Epson R-D1s, Canon 50/0.95



    Nikon something 50/1.2 AiS, UV capture



    Nikon D80-IR, 10.5mm fisheye Nikkor

    Pardon me. Looks like my dyslexia kicked in.

    I meant the 4th shot. The one with the bright white rope.

    What, They show up
    My bad... poor post I admit.... I was "tiring" to clean up some shadow areas that had a few scratches from the lab.. (I did contact the lab, and their QC is much better now)

    If you have a laptop.... just push your monitor back a little to darken it up.... All Gone

    Re: Show Us Your Boken - Any Camera -

    Thanks, M5-Guy and tokengirl.

    I am pretty convinced that even in another 8 years of serious snapping, I would still favor that image.

    That is one strong example that helped form a personal opinion that "bokeh" for the sake of boket is not the thing for me.

    Here is another boket snap.



    Nikon D300, 20/3.5 AiS plus a K1 ring

    It was a pleasure to see that go to a good home, Kevin. I take it those are Cam's fingers?

    Here is my thought on that shot taken with that same lens a while ago (D70, UV bandpass filter, refelcted UV capture).

    I avoided this thread for about a week now.

    Funny how the mind works.

    I first read this thread and glazing over the title I was pondering why ANYONE would show their BROKEN camera.
