My second comparison between my old Pentax and my new Canon is bokeh, or the aesthetic blur of the background. Not only does my new camera do a much better job of blurring out distracting backgrounds, but look how much closer and bigger the fountain looks in the second image! My model Jerod (who’s a great sport) was positioned in the same spot for both photos.
