Bokeh?

Today’s commute sucked. Friday. End of summer for schoolers. Everyone trying to get out of Dodge for their last hoorah. All I wanted to do was get home. No stops, just on a mission. But, there’s always the patio, a cold beer, and the garden!

The G11 is a point and shoot camera with really good depth of field (and excellent macro). Unfortunately, it doesn’t do good bokeh. This first shot is straight out of camera background blur (ISO 100, f/2.8):

For this next sunflower shot I used Photoshop to separate the flower into its own layer and then added Gaussian blur to the background.

Canon G11 headed towards the weekend.
