Just over a week to go till the day but the Holiday Season is already in full swing! I've been practising bokeh photography more recently and this is one of my favourite results so far. Happy Holidays to you all my friends! πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸ·πŸ›πŸŽ‰ #nikon #35mm #christmas #santa

_marisol: Happy Holidays to you too dear Charmy ❀ I so much love Christmas time! I just jogging and walking (6.5 km oyee!!) in my neighborhood and admired peopleΒ΄s Christmas lights on their windows and balconies. My balcony lights are almost ready. Next I decorate the windows and Christmas tree. This all hustle is astonishing to Sandra, she wondered why I brought the tree in our apartment 😁 'the forest gets angry for you because you stole the tree from there' she said ahhah! 😁 So beautiful picture, you have obviously learned to create a bokeh well. A little bit overexposure on the left but it blends into the picture pretty nicely and don=t bother me. Great work indeed my dear! Have a peaceful Sunday-evening ❀❀❀ Baci! πŸ’–

charmychelle: Thank you so much, dear Mari! πŸ˜ƒ You know, I just took this shot inside a pub! I spotted this cute little Santa in a store and thought that he would be perfect for a table decoration and some bokeh tests. I already had my camera with me for some Christmas light photography and wanted to take a bokeh shot outside but it started to rain so I was forced inside. I was meeting a friend in that pub for dinner and I arrived first to claim a table. I was quite bored and the ambience and lighting was just right and so I thought I'd give it a go. I've no idea what caused that big light on the left, perhaps some light in the bar as I was facing that... But I was all done before my friend arrived and glad that I didn't waste any of my time! πŸ˜…

charmychelle: We're just about all set up for Christmas here, like you I really love this season, love to look at the lights in my neighbourhood and everywhere I go... It's a busy time for us as my dad's birthday is on Dec 23. Many thanks for all the good wishes, I've passed them on and my dad is very grateful to you. 😊 Aww I can just imagine Sandra's curiosity and innocence to everything that's going on! πŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ Happy Holidays to you and your family, mi pana, thanks again for your comment. By the way, you look so radiantly beautiful in your new profile pic! πŸ˜‰πŸ’– Have a peaceful Sunday evening, you too, abbracci e baci per te e Sandra.. ✨😘✨

charmychelle: Oh, I forgot to add that you are one of my biggest inspirations for bokeh photography, every now and again I will look at the bokeh images in your gallery and try and learn from them...though I don't have the same gear as you, the 35mm is a pretty decent lens to use for it. So thank you again my dear, your comment means so much! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

_marisol: Oh...I'm so flattered that you have searched for the pictures with bokeh in my gallery and learned about them πŸ’œ I'm sure you'll get the idea very soon, though different lenses create the bokeh more easily or differently. I recommend a 100mm Canon macro, fixed. Another one is Helios, the bokeh master. A decent model costs about 80-100 Β£. Glad you like my new profile pic, thanks for your kind words. 1:15am here so good night πŸ˜„β€

charmychelle: Many thanks for those recommendations, I will check those out. πŸ˜‰ Goodnight! βœ¨πŸŒ™βœ¨

hogman72664 or david: Looks fabby to me. I have absolutely no idea about bokeh. I have read a little about it but just don't get the time to experiment, so if you've ever noticed any of my bokeh pics , rest assured it was entirely accidental. Merry Christmas to you and yours and Happy Birthday to Papachelle :):)XX

Posted: 2017 Dec 21 4:37:02 AM

charmychelle: Thanks David, I was just looking through your gallery now and you did a couple of good ones recently, in the photo of your granddaughter and of the Ankole cattle. πŸ˜‰ Any shot with a shallow depth of field will give bokeh. Now I’ve had enough of the blur and I’m going for the circles! πŸ˜… I took this shot inside Wetherspoons (The Butlers Bell) and I was facing the bar which had a lot of lights. I was very satisfied with the effect and this was actually the photo that I was going to share nearer to Christmas, until I took the photo of the robin, which I felt was more special, for me anyway! πŸ˜„ I don’t have The best lens for bokeh, nor even for macro etc, but what I love the most about the 35mm is that it can do a bit of everything and give a very satisfying result! πŸ™ƒ

charmychelle: Papachelle thanks you for the birthday greetings! πŸ˜„ Merry Christmas to you and your family, my dearest friend, may it be a happy and peaceful one. Much love and best wishes to you all xxx πŸŽ…πŸŽ„βœ¨πŸ·πŸŽ‰

jerry0522: Its kind of cool knowing you are making wonderful comments on my images as I write this :) I can only hope you enjoy my comments as much as I enjoy yours Michelle. This is an impressive and lovely display of bokeh!!! I wish you and your loved ones a Very Merry Christmas!!!

Posted: 2017 Dec 23 1:35:58 PM

charmychelle: Haha I can assure you that I enjoy reading your comments very much, Jerry! πŸ˜‰ I’m just relaxing now watching Christmas tv and catching up with comments here, it’s been a wonderful day so far! πŸ˜„ This was just a very improvised shot that I had set up in a bar/resto whilst waiting for a friend. I love bokeh shots and of course this was the perfect time to try out some tests of my own. I’m so glad you like it! πŸ˜ƒ Thank you so much, I hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas Day! ✨⭐️✨
