Looks like it was taken with a 21mm f/0.5 doesn't it. ;-) This bokeh panorama (see more with this technique) consists of 25 frames, and was created to achieve an impossibly shallow depth of field. I didn't have very much room to back up, and I wanted *some* detail in the background, so I decided to go ahead and try a bokeh panorama with the 50mm f/1.2. It is generally advised to use a longer lens so that there is less positional distortion, but if you're careful don't don't go too crazy, you can make it work. In order to combat that, I made sure to overlap more than usual so there were *plenty* of reference points to correct for distortion.
But ta-da! The Pub is where they had their first date, so it only seemed fitting to start the session there. I should also mention they frequent this place so much that she has a drink named after her...
