P 52-10-1 Subject: Bokeh
Posted By: djb47, 09-09-2021, 11:36 AM

Project 52 continues with P52-10-1 beginning tomorrow. For this challenge I'll judge and announce the winner next Thur. The winner will then get to judge and announce the winner of the P52-10-2 challenge. If you have a theme or technique you would like to see in the Project please let me know. I'll try and have themes posted a month or two in advance so you can see what will be coming in the weeks ahead. Thanks, Don

The bokeh effect is produced when the foreground and/or background is intentionally blurred around a subject. Bokeh, meaning "blur" in Japanese, can be achieved by using adjusting a camera's aperture for a shallow depth of field. The bokeh effect is an aesthetic choice and tends to give images a dreamlike appearance.

As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.

Photos for P52-10-1 are to be taken and posted between Sep 10 and Sep 16.

Rules:
1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-10 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture or how it represents the weekly theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non
Pentax cameras are allowed. Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot,
Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones, please.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

I appreciate the feedback.
I'd go with the second image also Brad.

Closeups of nature seem to be the sub-theme here;
No sub-theme intended I can assure you.

Uhm, guys and girls, the idea is "Post your single picture in Project 52-10 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture or how it represents the weekly theme.". In any event, glad we are up and running with Project 52 again. Thanks Don!

Project 52-10-1 is closed. Thank you all that participated.

Tom, that dragon fly contrasts nicely with the blurred background.
Yaki, that lens has a nice bokeh and compliments your subject well. I do find the bright lower left corner a tad distracting though.
Kristian, the sagebrush really stands out. Those pines made for a real pleasant backdrop.
Rglasel, nicely composed with colorful bokeh ball accents. I'd crop out that leaf at the bottom of the image.
CedrusMacro, you nailed the center focus. That foreground flower (?) does not complement your subject though.
UncleVanya, nice center focus on the flower with good background bokeh.
Noel, those leaves contrast nicely against a most pleasing bokeh background. Well done.


I'll give first place to Noelcmn with honorable mentions to RGlasel and Kristian.


Noel, you get to judge Project 52-10-2.

Again, well done all.

Cheers for the feedback Don, I was undecided at the time to crop that flower out, will consider it next shot I get that has this issue (it was another evening primrose).

Well done Noel.

Thanks for the mention, I'm flattered to be considered with so many great photos posted here. Well done to everyone who posted here, I'd certainly have a hard time picking just one favourite of the bunch.
