Does Canon pay you to post pics like that!
In reply to keithallenlaw, Jul 12, 2007

Pictures like that sell the L lenses... thinking of getting one now, my 85 1.8 is very nice... but the f/1.2 bokeh is magic!

if I only had the L for these...

Very nice.

It's sad that these days you'd often ask if a picture like that was constructed in Photoshop. (I'm not suggesting this particular one WAS, buy the way!)

wow! thanks all. i've posted this on a few forums and in each forum I got the same question about the bokeh being real.

Just to clarify here, I DID NOT touch the background in any way. The only processing I did here was some levels and burned the edges where the street was dark. I did sharpen for web (150, 0.2, 0).

but that is it, honestly. I think this has a surreal feel because of the quality light. It was just after a rainfall and the sun was at my back under cloud cover...that along with shooting at f/1.2.

anyway, big thanks.
