Logic is superior to emotion

Emotion is much more fun!

Watch out for the exposure police.
They will tell you that its wrong even

Does Canon pay you to post pics like that!

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!)

Re: Does Canon pay you to post pics like that!

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.

Definitely agree that this was worth the bump!

I remember seeing this back in July, and since then I have found my mind wandering back to this photo numerous times. To the OP, Thank you, what a wonderful shot, I would love to see more!!!

Cheers
