    This definitely has Wow factor - professional looking. The blurry background in the distance really, really contributes to the shot - good choice of aperture - can you tell us what it was. It's obvious you zoomed in some - everything that should be in focus is in focus. Do you remember exactly where you focused?

    Thanks, Neil. The background blur is actually PhotoShop. Focal length was 85mm. f/5.6 By the way, thanks for leading this meetup. Your presentation was extremely informative.

    Very effective - it reminds me that post-production techniques would be a great MeetUp topic - then again, our own Mark Chamberlin probably offers a class in photo software via SmarterPics ; )

    Thanks for "confessing" on the bokeh, Paul. That was a little baffling technically. But there is NO harm in doing stuff like this. It WORKS! It just confuses your fellow photo geeks though.
