I think he Merp was thinking about this creamy image. I have noticed it comes out of my 70-200 2.8L IS often and never got it from my old 75-300 III. It must be the optics and I just love it.

It has the effect of being painted, very cool but you do need to see a larger version.

I call it a creamy bokeh:D as do a lot of others.

Good link - Rick Denney does a good job here of demonstrating the subject.

Here's the only shot I have that has an effect like that.. Is this closer??

You could get close to this effect using Diffuse Glow In CS2 and play with the sliders.

I wouldn't say that background has bokeh, creamy or otherwise. When I think of creamy bokeh I think of something like this:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: NOT FOUND | MIME changed to 'image/gif' | Redirected to error image by FLICKR


...smooth, rounded edges to any detail and smooth, creamy areas to any areas without detail.

Very true.. I guess I've just gotten use to plug-ins!

That's what I've started looking for and found a few cool ones through this forum.

How is that creamy? To me that is not creamy, I can't even find the words to describe yours it sure is different.

If this is image hasn't got creamy bokeh, I don't know what does.

To see the cream effect you have to see the larger image like this.

The W/B is not perfect since I shot L/fine JPG I still have to fix it.

Well, RgB, maybe it is a difference of the understanding of what bokeh is. I just feel that the out-of-focus area is too "in focus" to be considered creamy bokeh. As I now look at your larger image, I can now see why you consider it creamy, but the branches and leaves are too focused to consider it great bokeh.

But that's just my opinion...it's not a criticism of your photograph at all, just in terms of the word 'bokeh'.

Are you referring to skin smoothing techniques? If so, you may want to check out this thread: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=171753

Thanks for linking that tutorial Blane! That's awesome.
