Hi,

Just want to know what you think about

the bokeh

and

the extra saturated cherries

Background: I invested in a high q monitor (8-bit) and I really don´t know how the red comes out on other monitors

Shot and colours look ok, what was the monitor you got? I always thought

8 bit ment 240 colours and 32 bit millions of colours

with regard to bokeh it seems ok. I rem years ago when I got my first film slr

the hardest thing about it was to get high depth of field, it always produced

shallow depth of field and required a good tripod, higher stopsand longer

exposure to get high dof, strange how often shallow is prefered to high dof

with digital photography...................musket

Oh, it´s a high-Q Samsung. (8 bits per channel, if i understand it, gives true > 16 million colours

Now that´s a discussion topic. I think the "isolation-from-the-background-psychosis" can be treated with cognition therapy.

For sure it can be interesting to see how Bumble Bee looks up his nose(?) but it can also be pleasing to see his habitat

Well, pro vocere means to make other people say what they really think :-)


musket, I wish you a nice week-end

Ah I am more enlightened now. There areadditional ways I have found to further

dim/blur the backgroundto make the subject stand out more eg in Zoner Studio

you can use the polygon tool to encircle the bits you want to dim or blur more

and then the blur tool to execute the blurring...a handy gizmo for that would be

the graphics tablet as it's harder to be precise doing the outlining with the mouse.

have a nice week end also.................musket

Thank you for the tip. Being pretty new to digital photo this site really can function as a photograpy school in the best meaning of the word
