    Default Merry Bokeh Christmas!

    So, I stumbled upon this cool little site that shows you how to make your own bokeh shapes, so I had to give it a test drive:







    Still leaning what makes the best size cutout, and how to improve. I think that you want it as big as possible, while still being smaller that the max aperture of your lens, the longer the lens the better. Also, I think it wants to be right up against the front element as much as possible to cut down on the blurring of your shape.

    Okay...time for a Lightroom WTF type question...



    Image #730. WTF??

    This is the ONLY image in my entire Lightroom database that has that "special color" to it when looking at it in the Grid View mode of the Library module. I can't find anything in the documentation about why it would be that weird shade of gray-blue instead of just pure gray like the rest of them.

    Does anyone know WTF that's about?

    It has been flagged "Blue", you probably did it by hitting a 6 through 9 key on the keyboard when it was selected. I don't have lightroom in front of me, but I know 6 is red and they go up from there. You can get rid of it by selecting it and go the the photo menu, and I believe go to the "Flagged" sub menu, and you can uncheck "Blue".

    Okay. That did it. You can select the images, then right-click, select 'Set Color Label" and choose. I had a couple others selected as red and yellow, but they're not as easily visible (the image border is the selected color, rather than the entire "slide").

    Wonder how it got like that and I wonder how one would utilize those labels to begin with?

    They are just another handy way to organize (besides stars, picks, and the quick collection). I use them to make notes to my self, for instance I use blue to indicate that I want to go back and make some local adjustments, red to say it might be a reject, but let me play around with it. Then I often use green and yellow as a temporary quick collection. That kind of thing.

    --EDIT--
    Never mind, I just went over there and saw the thread.

    Love the framing, saturation, vignetting on the flag image! As for the carousel, I'm not on a calibrated screen, so it is hard for me to tell, but it looks like the white balance might be a little green, and for a cozy carnival ride, it might suit the image to warm it up just a touch (in my opinion on a non-calibrated screen so who knows what I'm looking at ) Also I imagine that you are resting the camera on something to get the shutter speed, so you are limited in your framing, but I find the railing cutting right through the center of frame slightly distracting. If you had a choice (which again I realize you might not have due to trying to find something to rest the camera on) I might try and get the camera point up a bit to try and get that railing a bit lower in the frame.
