Last month I did a bokeh comparison shoot with a Nikon V1 and Nikon D700, so I jumped at the chance to use my findings in this competition. The FX format D700 with NIKKOR 70-300mm fared well in that comparison, making it the logical choice for this competition, right? Incorrect! Just as I believe your alliterative progression was incorrect. Shouldn't it be: bokeh, bouquet, briquette, barbecue, Barbie? This diminuitive model is better suited to the close focus capability of the Nikon 1 NIKKOR 30-110mm. With the lens at full zoom and the model at 1m, the background lights of Vancouver balloon to beautiful balls of bokeh.

Shameless bonus points appeal: The odds of seeing sunshine in Vancouver in November are low. Therefore, travelling to the top of a mountain on a cold and rainy night to take an out of focus photo with enough accessories to require an assistant should count double. Even Barbie's limbs were cold and stiff by the end of the session.

Now, go look at those lips again. Bokehlicious!
