    Fresh bokehs from my Canon 550D.

    My son's RE Classic 500 Black is in focus with my Linea getting blurred in the background.

    Reversal of role: my Linea is the subject with Classic 500 Black getting blurred in the foreground.

    I found this owl stranded at my door step. Took her in and tended to her till she could fly and then set her free. (Don't ask me how I know that the owl was female. I like to think so)

  6. Hope this qualifies for bokeh

    bokeh1.jpg

    A bit out of focus, badly PPed and cropped, overall a bad specimen :(

    BTW, Comments and criticisms to improve are always welcome. Am a newbie to photography, trying to learn :)

    Even the first one does. It just uses more of Gaussian blur, but is still Bokeh, nevertheless.

    Not so sure about this one Jayadev. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light". In this picture, there is hardly any point of light in the OoF area. I will let the experts comment on this.

    Technically, Bokeh must use the point of lights in the background and blur them enough to convert them to round discs (as seen in some pictures of this thread). It will end up as a polygon sometimes, if a bladed aperture lens is used. The background just being OoF is not enough. Typically it should be just a medley of light spots - either dots/discs or a completely blurred background with dark and light hues, formed by the diffused discs over lapping each other. Please do not confuse it as the subject being in sharp focus and the rest of the picture being OoF.
