55-200mm bokeh

Shot this a while back when the 55-200mm was brand new to me. This was shot @200mm f5.6, which a more seasoned photographer would know this would be terrible for a bokeh-like depth-of-field, but to a budding photographer it was still a sweet effect. The addition of fog added to the hazyness of the effect.

I had yet to pickup a 50mm 1.8 and really understand what awesome bokeh really was!

Writing up a how-to on a simple steel-wool setup which will appear on tomorrow's post. Stay tuned!
