Looks awesome. I love your human sacrifice joke.

  • Thank you!

One question, remember I'm US American... why is the bokeh shaped like footballs on light sources? Just curious.

Quote:

'Fig. 3 is an additional illustration of the cat's eye effect. The picture was taken with an unusually large-aperture lens of F/1.2. In this photograph the highlights are clipped in a curious fashion. The cause of the clipping is, however, not due to the lens, but to the camera. Indeed, the mirror chamber of the SLR that Mike used is too small to support the speed of the lens. The light cone that emerges from the lens exit pupil is clipped by the camera before it reaches the sensor'.
