Challenge: Bokeh V (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8
Location: Koh Samui, Thailand
Date: Dec 14, 2008
Aperture: F2.2
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/5000
Galleries: Still Life, Floral
Date Uploaded: Dec 15, 2008

The Image: Shot this against a glass waterfall that was reflecting the morning sun so beautifully...I know, a flower...but I think it's a nice flower! The bokeh of the Nikon 50mm 1.8 is amazing. Hand held the flower in one hand and the camera in the other. Wish I had a reflector with me.

The Edit: Levels, colour balance, contrast, Smart Sharpen...

The Prediction...high 5's or 6...all I can say is that at least there is Bokeh in my image. I predict that most of the photos will be purely shallow depth of field blurred backgrounds....

Post: My prediction was right...

Very nice The bokeh and the flower go well together. You can tell tell the shape of your lens diaphram by the shape of your bokeh. 8
