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

Ho-Hooo!  Trust me, you don't want to open THIS can of
worms again.  I'm shooting everything with a pinhole.
With maximum depth of field and no out of focus
backgrounds, nobody can whine about bad bokeh!  I was
at a used camera show a few weeks ago and overheard a
couple of guys arguing about the bokeh of a particular
lens.  Walked up, smacked 'em both and yelled "This
one's from Peter K!" then got the hell out of there.  
Remember: When you're a young guy with a camera, you
use it to convince girls to take off their clothes so
you can create art. Sometime in your 40s you stop all
that and start arguing bokeh with other geezers.

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

Two comments. First, the only people who complained
about boek are 
those on the RUG. No comments were noted as such on the
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.
