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

<P>Gary Widland here, new member, been watching all this, and didn't even&nbsp;understand "bokeh."&nbsp; Now I&nbsp;realize, and for this shot I have to say&nbsp; Bokeh Schmokay.&nbsp; I agree with Peter.&nbsp; In a moment, this photo captures an essence.&nbsp; A great shot that tells a&nbsp;huge story.&nbsp; <BR><BR></P></DIV>

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