Bokah (Bokeh) is the subject, had to check and see if this one has been done before. Actually surprised it hasn't. Looking for that distorted, elongated highlight effect that is so prominent with the Lensbaby. Sample image shown to the right.
Usual rules apply, hope to see many creative and excellent images enhanced by the bokah effect.

Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Camera (with LB attached)
2. Time - any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the judge will decide if it works.
4. Posting - * Photo Name in the message subject line.* Camera model & Lensbaby used.* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Have FUN!
8. Good luck to everyone.

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends- 6.30pm PDT(Pacific Daylight Time)
Thursday, August 13th, 2009

Wow, some great images here causing some debate over selections and leading to a tie for second place. Thanks to everyone who participated not a bad image in the bunch. I appreciate the turnout this week, never easy judging these.

3rd place goes to Crabby for the "Blue Morpho"
Beautiful image, really liked the wider aspect ratio here. More bokah (like more cowbell) would have moved this up easily higher in the selection.

2nd place (Tie) goes to Bender for "Bank Shot" and Jbrunjes for "Harley Bokah"
The creative ap bokah effect in "Bank Shot" is well done. Definitely adds some pop to this architectural.
"Harley Bokah" is an image I've commented on in the past and has an amazing bokah variety of colors and eliptical shapes. Fantastic image.

1st place goes to Shurla for "Jellyfish Room"
This is bokah 100%, amazing colors and effect. Congratulations, very well done. The next challenge is all yours.

Thanks again to everyone who submitted images. Lets keep them coming.
