Challenge: In The Style Of: bspurgeon (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2011 Challenges
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D
Location: Tampere, Finland
Date: Jul 9, 2011
Aperture: F1.4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/1250
Date Uploaded: Jul 14, 2011

During 2010 Ben did a picture a week shallow depth of field project. I followed this closely as I was doing a B & W a week. Typically Ben used his 50/1.4 for these images and usually shot wide open, so I figured I would try and emulate him in shooting something with a very shallow depth of field.

Hard to get anything focused at 1.4 that's for sure!

Naturally I turned it to B & W with a tint of something

This is beautiful Sarah! Although Lev is mostly right (I have an obsession with triangles...love to see them in photographs...), but this image instantly reminded me of this

This has Sarah written all over it. Wonderful Bokeh, gives me a feeling of tallness ;) Nice one.

Well rendered, lovely tones and bokeh. I always enjoy nature imaged in this manner. Gives me a sense of place, connected to a mundane plant, flower, etc.

This has the calm authority of a Ben: the use of things and non-things to take us beyond a bivalent logic.

Wonderful Ben-like eye candy here. I tease him for producing images like these, though this is quite beautiful.
