Here's my latest post to my flickr account....... tell me how you feel. I realize I sound like a lunatic, but it bugs me. View attachment 60617 oof raindrops on evergreens by Lukinosity, on Flickr You may also call them specular highlights (a fancy term for a reflection of the light source). But please whatever you do, DO NOT call those white balls BOKEH. It's a pet peeve of mine. Bokeh is a term that refers to the quality (or qualities) of the out of of focus areas. Not the fact that something IS out of focus. Don't worry, I'm not picking on you. It seems like everyone is misusing the term. Even reviewers.....people who are paid to write about cameras. One well known camera reviewing deuchebag was recently writing about a $2,800 camera and actually said that the camera had a fast lens and had plenty of Bokeh. He didn't say whether he liked it or not (or describe if it was creamy or busy). He just said it had plenty! Well, I hate to break it to him, but any camera with the same sized sensor and a certain focal length and aperture will have the same DOF. But their bokeh will be different (there won't be more or less of it, just the quality of it will be different......it's a quality, not a quantity). But I love shallow DOF compositions that yield these kind of results. It's just that there is nothing wrong with learning the right terminology. It's my particular curse. I may just end up shooting everything at f22 to avoid this. Rant over.
