i like #3 the best, very koo
Personally... I really like the first one.
All somewhat under-exposed, but excellent use of selective focus and control of DoF - what lens and aperture(s) were you using in these images?
#3 is a good example of Hollywood bokeh.
The bokeh in #1 is very busy, edgy, and it's not as pleasing because it lacks the other kind of boken, nice, smooth, cream cheese bokeh.
#2 looks like a focusing mistake, though I know it's not given the thread title.
Thanks for the comments.
They're shot with a Nikkor 50 1.4 on a Canon body. The aperture was either 1.4 or 1.8.
I think #3 needs to be stopped down a bit cause the guy's head isn't all in focus.
I think the motion of the people in #1 added to the strange bokeh. The shutter was set to get some blurring.
#2 didn't come out as nice as I imagined. The binocular thingy is too blobby. I wanted the "eyes" to appear more ghostly with focus on "watchtower"
Thanks again for commenting!
Awesome pictures. Great focus and blur.
