Hey, I absolutely love this series. And the fact that you showed people how to do it.
I've commented before, but I wanted to stop by and let you know that I featured your series and your technique photo on my blog with a little writeup. Check it out if you want: Big Bokeh Photography : Technique Tutorial.
If for any reason you want me to take it down, let me know. Everything on there links back to your DA though!
XD the cross-eyed sniggler and the 0.o are my default facial expressions....they're the default expressions of almost every member of Dokuga.com actually, who goes on Chat. Though you probably don't know what Dokuga is....
I love seeing how you actually make these images! Did you just focus on an area that didn't have a lot of green on the garland for the background? Or did the green leaves just kind of filter out in the end process?
