RE: [Rollei] OT: Nice image but bad bokeh -- look!

Two comments.  First, the only people who complained about boek are
those on the RUG.  No comments were noted as such on the comments
associated with the photograph.
Secondly, it it hard to eliminate those harsh shadows where lighting is
so bright in the background regardless of lens.  I would almost bet you
the photographer used an aperture of about F5.6 considering the depth of
field and lens.
If a wider aperture it would lose the selective focus including the
motorcycle but your bokeh would have been better.  Given a choice, I
think the photographer did very well.  It is always easy to judge for
those that have a hard time doing.

I have to agree, the highlights in the trees look awful. It's really too

bad because the photo is otherwise very good.
