Challenge: Bokeh III (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Sony DSC-W5
Location: South Africa, Pretoria
Date: Oct 18, 2006
Aperture: 10
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/250
Galleries: Nature, Macro
Date Uploaded: Oct 24, 2006

Shot using a reversed Asahi Super-Takumar 55mm f/1.8 lens.

Minimal editing.
Noise reduction as I was shooting a ISO 200, very minor curves adjustment, added the border, sharpened and saved for web.

Wish I could clone out the dust spots on my sensor, on a P&S nonetheless.

Considering the challenge was bokeh, I'm not all that impressed with the bokeh that is here. I see it, but I don't think it really is the focus of the photograph or add much to it. On it's own, outside of the challenge, it's a nice shot...perhaps a bit tight in the crop at the top. Some nice textures and good exposure in the different lighting areas of the photo.

This is impressive work especially considering your using a P&S, and very creative use of colors for the background. Such nice detail and nice side lighting.

the background having all the color is genius -- one of my favorites this challenge
