    Default Guess which?

    OK! It's time to play a game!
    Guess what lens, brand, focal length that I used for taking that photo? And also the shooting distance!

    Default ^^Thank goodness..^^

    ..you're not asking for:
    - what aperture (if it has variable aperture)?
    - what shutter speed?

    ..i have a feeling we'll see several posts for this...startiiiing..NOW!!
    My only guess: Canon 100mm f/2.8 and you were sitting down, on the grass, enjoying the sunshine, with your legs crossed and just a few feet away..

    Hmm, that's an extremely small depth of field with a flat perspective. That's quite a distinctive out of focus background.

    I'm guessing it's a 200 mm lens being used at f2.0. wether it's Nikon or Canon I can't tell.

    kwun is correct!
    those donut like bolehs were made by a reflex mirror lens. the lens that I used for that photo was a nikon 500mm F8 reflex mirror lens. and flowers were about 20 feet away from me. "donuts" in the background were in fact light spots between leaves of a tree which was at least 100 feets away from my shooting spot.
    i've been told that mirror lens can only produce low contrast images! but i think the nikon one is really different! do u guys know, that photo was taken in a rainny day!

    here is one for me to share. i have been really busy lately with everything (and apologies to the many who has sent me email/PMs as i haven't been able to reply them). but last weekend i did manage to take a break with family and friends for a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe. We managed to stay away from work and computer and spent some time in the snow. we were lucky to stay next to the lake. i went out in the middle of the night at 20F weather to take some photos. i stood out there for an hour. this one i was particularly proud of.



    exposure info is:

    24mm
    f/5.6
    ISO800
    160 seconds

    it was 1am.

    coldness aside, it was worth it. very rarely do i get to spend time alone with myself in such a nice scenery.

    the blue color... well, you know, it all white balance adjustment!

    That motorcycle bisection looks like a James Bond-type torture some BC'ers have dreamed of for their favourite badminton commentator: That Guy.
