    Photography Contest XLI: Bokeh

    The theme is "Bokeh"

    Bokeh or "blurred" background. It can be a picture of anything but it has to involve bokeh in some way.


    The Deadline is 19th March 23:59 GTM+1

    For those of you wondering when that'll be in your local timezone, just go here: http://wwp.centraleuropeantime.com/


    What are the rules?

    No photoshopping allowed, besides cropping and changing a picture to B&W or Sepia, and making panoramas.
    Post production editing is allowed. The editing done should be global, such as contrast, brightness, or overal tonal balancing (i.e. no sponge/dodge/burn, no brushes, vignetting, etc). Filters are prohibited. Any global editing should be used only to enhance the features that were captured in the shot to begin with. The only exception is converting to B&W or sepia.

    Tell us what you did, unless it's staring us right in the face, in which case you probably shouldn't have done it ^^

    If you want to, feel free to share your settings and how you arrived at your final photo.


    What equipment do I need?

    Well, as long as it can capture light and produce an image you can share with others, be it a analog camera, digital camera or maybe a cellphone camera, you are good to go.


    How do we submit the pictures?

    By posting them here in this thread. To make things easier for all of us, the kind and superior being that is mr_charisma has supplied a 3dbuzz photo contest script that magically makes your images 3dbuzz-forum-friendly! I suggest using that, but you are of course free to choose any imagehost you like!

    For those that intend to use the magic that mr_charisma conjured, the link is http://www.20papercups.net/image_upload


    If there are any questions, just ask here.

    Now let the photography commence!

    The only edit was the bw filter added.

    A little bit about the image:
    The fruits that were captured in the image were long past their consummation time. The only one still somewhat edible (didn't dare to try) was the one that I tried to place in focus. Giving this a double meaning to out of focus effect that is desired for this contest.

    Didn't quite get the more accentuated bokeh effect so that is something I will have to look at how to do (android). Hope it will be a valid submission or add activity to this contest.

    I don't really do photography, unless it's texture reference. But I thought I'd share one by my daughter. Sorry for the compression, I couldn't reach her so I had to rip it off facebook.

    Here's my image. I just didn't have much time for anything because of a new job I got so I took some pictures at home at least.

    You've got until tomorrow before I close the contest.
