that's a canon G6, isn't it?

Isn't that the bridge on which the movie separate sisters climax took place?

Jens, you are right! :)

I love the photo, Rolf - and I enjoy to see a photo with my camera! :) Great!! (A favorite it is!)

I would love to see your image of that moment - meta photography.

I am so glad that I took this second shot with full open aperture. 1.8 has a so much better Bokeh than 2.8 with the aperture blades making polygons out of the dots.

But not bad for a 40€ second hand lens, isn't it?

(Sigma 28mm/1.8 without internal motor for the focus)

Forgive my English please.
Awesome photo. Photo of a camera taking a photo. Cool.
I would like to see more examples in f-spot. It seems to be a very good program. I use kde and never had need for photo manager programs but it seems it can really safe time and work. I once tested digikam but it overtake me, it is to complicated or I am to stupid. So I will try maybe f-spot and check if I can work with this.

How you make the unsharp back with so nice drops? What is the trick?
Rolf Steinort December 14, 2009, 08:23 PM

The trick is a wide open aperture and a short distance to the subject. Shallow DOF, large circles of confusion.

Is there a photo of you making this photo?
Rolf Steinort December 18, 2009, 08:36 PM
No, we had only two cameras.... :-)

Wieso ist oben alles Orange und verschwommen und unten Blau und sauber? Ist das so gemacht oder ein Fehler?

Das Bild ist bei Blende 1.8 gemacht, hat also eine ganz kleine Tiefenschärfe.

Der LCD-Bildschirm der Kamera im Bild ist in der Schärfenzone und zeigt das Bild mit anderem Weißabgleich und anderer Belichtung als ich eingestellt hatte. Natürlich ist auch der Ausschnitt anders, der Blick geht über den Fluss.

Die gelben Flecken sind beleuchtete Fenster in den Gebäuden am Ufer. Weit außerhalb der Schärfenzone und daher als Blendenflecken abgebildet. Orange/gelb sind sie, weil der Weißableich mehr oder weniger Tageslicht war.

Was an dem Bild verändert wurde, kannst du dir hier ansehen. Nur etwas Kontrastkorrektur durch Kurven, jeweisl für den Bildschirm und den Rest des Bildes.
