Challenge: Bokeh III (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6G
Location: Kameruka Cricket Ground
Date: Oct 21, 2006
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1/1000
Galleries: Sports, Candid
Date Uploaded: Oct 22, 2006

Taken at the historic Kameruka estate cricket ground where Australia and England played a game in 1896. My team were playing against Kameruka on the weekend and as usual I had my camera at the game.

I thought that most of the photos in the last bokeh challenge were pretty, but not great photos. The bokeh needs to play a part in the story of the photo not just be a pretty pattern in the background - and here I feel the bokeh is just as important as the in focus subject.

Shot JPG editing in CS1- levels layer, curves layer, selective colour layer - USM, resize and save for web.

Great way to highlight the important subject.

Maybe not bokeh in the traditional sense but your blurred background surely finishes off the "story" of the shot. A little grainy maybe and the line in the back has a funky tilt which makes the shot feel a bit tilted but a nice candid shot in general.
