Yes I overlooked that thread when I started this one so I am sorry for this but it certainly has brought out some cracker jack images. Terrific.

Yes, it certainly has, and the title doesn't have the word "bourgeois" in it either.

Just goes to show, the image either works or it doesn't and what's technically 'correct' doesn't necessarily impact upon our subjective appreciation of 'successful' art. ...
thank you and right! After I had started using manual lenses on digital bodies, first on dSLRs that were badly equipped for that, good focus was my main aim. Certainly I must have discarded many that were badly focused. Now, specially after having seen that scooter photo, I'd consider them. ( great Bangkok Photos and guides for photographers at your blog, thank you! Hope to meet you some time there to go out taking photos together, pass by in Bangkok quite often, last time was less than a week ago )

yes, but I notice that a good part of images posted in your thread are actually not out of focus but blurry from motion. The title of the other thread doesn't distinguish, your's does, or would, and I wished photos submitted would too.
later edit: oh, I see that in spite of the title "out of focus" in your post you specify that also motion blur is included

Yes true. I always think its terribly bourgeois to use the word bourgeois. :^)
Only joshing!

Ron, not a clue... All shot on film; the first two are circa 2004 in Beijing - Bessa T both with the VC28/3.5, and the third is a Nikonos V + 35mm. Honestly, they were all rather serendipitous outcomes due to a combination of having slow film in the camera and/or while walking. For example, the first one was iso 100 at dusk, in heavy overcast and rain, from the hip whilst walking, with a slow lens - almost no chance of a sharp image there . I remember the 2nd one was at a similar time of day, although with better light, and, again, shot whilst walking. The 3rd one was at Songkran in Thailand and I remember nothing of the circumstances for that one....

Ron, here is another one (digital) where I know the shutter speed - 1/60 with a 50mm lens - so I'd hazard a guess that the previous ones are likely to be somewhere around the same speed. A potentially ok speed for a sharp image but not when everyone's moving.
