cliched shot.

grain is deliberate, i shot it at iso 1600 for this reason.

PS: Actually shot with old takumar 55mm F1.8 at f1.8, but since lense listing does not have that in database i chose the closest to that lense.

I always liked bokeh from this lense so just entering because of this reason. Its mundane shot, but this is what i could come up with 5 minutes walk around my house.

further 5 minutes of pp and it is in the challenge.

Thanks for looking, score does not matter to me so i do not care and have no prediction. Shall not be worse than 4.5 though.

A Rose, by any other name. Lovely soft image, a bit of grain, not serious. Decent composition. Not a lot of bokeh to be seen BEHIND the subject (i.e. Background OOF area)

I like the shot, but for me the border is overpowering- When it first pops up on the screen it's hard to see the beautiful lines and subtlety in the flower at first because of the sharp contrast. The voter's first impression is a blob of white surrounded by a sea of stark black (people are rushing through :( ). I'd recommend a much lighter border. I won't vote it down for that, but wanted to let you know. Good luck in the challenge!
