Bokeh You Baby

Getting ready for a Christmas party. Setting up lights and Santa area. Got to make sure that all the light setting, camera dials and I remember how to drag the shutter for this session.

Going to be a very long night. Wonder how Santa's photo elves handle all those Christmas kid photos?
Little experiment here. I wanted to see if there is any difference in the sharpness when I upload direct from my computer virsus using Flickr.

Can you tell any difference in the details, sharpens and colors?

hard to tell because they are different sizes, I think. The larger something gets, I think it isn't as crisp? But they are both very, very similar.

I can't tell any difference but I'm just an amateur!!!

The difference is really subtle but I love what you've done.

Cool bokeh effect. Only a slight difference in color.

I feel like the second one is sharper, but that might be because of the size like someone else said. Great shot!

Absolutely magical....puts me in the Holiday mood!

I think the second is a bit sharper too, but they are pretty darn close!

I don't notice any perceptible difference in sharpness. Great scene and very lovely bokeh!

Live traffic feed always throws me off. I don't live anywhere near the place it always says I come from.

anyway... since the sizes are different it's hard to compare. :)
