This shot is an aperture stack... the cable was shot at f/6.3, the background was shot at f/2.2, and the two were manually blended. I previously called it a focus stack, but, strictly speaking, that would entail different focus distances. I focused on the same point and adjusted the aperture to maintain the bokeh along with the highly defined subject.
This is the fountain at the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston. It was very windy and the stray water made a cool bokeh effect in this shot. The red and blue was created by using two flashes, one with a red filter and one with a blue filter. They were fired at different times so the water would be in different places when each flash fired.
