    I really like this and JP - I think you are being a bit too mean and scary about yourself. I just love how the bokeh turned out.

    great contrast - rugged against strong but soft bokeh

    Tried this myself but I just couldn't execute it properly. This one looks nice.

    A fair bit of fiddling about to get the technique right, but it worked fairly well on the night.
    Maybe... in fact you look a lot better in B&W for this shot, but you lose the colourful bokeh, so the colour version gets posted.
    I think he needs congratulating for staying perfectly still for 1.3 seconds ;-)
    There you go Josh, Kath thinks you're rugged! ;-)
    It's tricky, that's for sure.
    Maybe... definitely your rubber band.
