    Although its hard to tell, the blue background was actually a work shop.

    Nikon D2x at ISO 200, 1/250s f/4.5 at 200.0mm, Vivitar 285 HV flash hand-held in left hand
    with SC-17 connecting cord, direct flash at fractional power for eye catchlights.

    February blooming miniature crocus flowers shot with a Fuji S2 Pro 6MP d-slr with Tamron 90mm macro at f/4.8 at 1/90
    Shade WB at ISO 100 RAW, SB-28DX flash with PhotoFlex mini-softbox, SC-17 cord, MacBibble 3.1a auto proof,
    which was reduced to this file. No post processing, just this automatic conversion.

    Nikon D2x ,200mm f/2 VR-G at f/2.8 1/30 sec ISO 400 exposure for miniature Christmas lights as a background,
    foreground flash exposure is from Vivitar 285HV flash in small Photoflex umbrella and gelled w TN-A1,
    camera WB set to Incandescent WB to render mini Christmas lights appropriately. My Canon 70-200 2.8 L-IS rendered
    the mini Christmas lights as "football-shaped" ellipsoidal blobs; the 200 f/2 Nikkor makes a very circular blur disc.

    Well, a theme thread on "Bokeh" has existed for years now, so I merged the newly started one with the existing one.

    Nice theme, and I hope I got "bokeh" here and not only just "blurred background", though I am still not quite so sure about it...!?!?

    I can go look through my archives in an attempt to find examples which I myself feel lean more towards "bokeh" than just "blurred background", but that takes time. This is just one of my newest pics.

    Here's another one that might fit the theme, I took this one last year in November:

    And an even older one, taken in May of 2006 on Riensberg Cemetery in Bremen.
    The imperfect flower, destroyed by heavy rainfalls.

    I should go look for photos that I took when the 50mm lens was all new... ;-)

    Very Very nice shots everyone! I guess there was a thread for it after all :lol: and we got moved!

    Eric - Great shot on the butterfly touching down on the flower!

    Battou - Nice flower shots!

    Kalamarie - My favorite is the teacup. Very creamy bokeh on this shot!

    Derrel - Those colourful lights in the background are pretty much circles...what are
    you using a hundred blade lens? LOL great shots!

    Lafoto - The purple flower takes the cake! Very very appealing to the eye

    farmerj - Cheers!

    JE kay - Nice hairstyle on the horse!


    Ok here's the next one from me...the bokeh isn't noticable but I like it how creamy it turned out just behind the subject.
