Moving right along, as Pete said (has it already been over 6 years?) for the original thread:

Pete wrote in post #4957531 (external link)
This is a bit of an off-shoot from the Bokeh thread in the lens section here.

Now. To me, bokeh is the art of using a blurred background to provide a pleasing contrast to the subject. In effect, the subject should be isolated away from the background and "pop".

So, post your best candidates here and I'll pass my subjective and artistic judgment on them all.

Original thread Started 2/20/08.

On Dull Grey British Winter days I tend to shot more so in black and white. I thought B&W suited this image as there was just no colour anywhere on this miserable gloomy cold day.
The picture below shows a shallow depth of field and a Deep depth of field. The 20-25 posts being about 1metre apart tend to just fade away into the back ground. I was looking for a 3d type effect with the post that is in focus.

Canon 1ds MK3 with EF200 f/2.0 IS USM 1/160th @ f2.0 @ISO 100 In Manual mode using Back button focussing (hand held)
