    Hi all,
    I haven't visited this NG for several years, and I
    forgot what bokeh is. Can somebody refresh my memory?

    It is the noise old Jewish men make when clearing their throats. :)

    It's pronounced 'Throat-Warbler-Mangrove'...

    It is the term which refers to the quality of the rendition of the
    out-of-focus elements in a photograph.

    "Good bokeh" usually refers to background blurring that blurs into smooth
    color transitions, rather than harsh, strong-edged elements.

    An aspect of the looks of out of focus areas.

    I love to tease Leica worshippers as much as the next guy...but anyone who
    says bokeh is a non-issue is either unobservant, or just a careless

    I don't have a problem with happy-snappers, but there IS more to a photo
    than just what's in focus.
