*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An attractive image that comes close to meeting the challenge.

There are a few specular highlights that are starting to form bokeh but I feel that the image as a whole is more soft focus than true bokeh, though it is definitely not far off. I think this could have been more effective if you had, for example, some sunlit water in the background then those highlights would be a lot better defined and much more effective than what you have here.

In terms of exposure I feel you have a little too much of it, there are some severely blown highlights on the leaves of the focused plant in the foreground which are detrimental to the image as a whole. The composition is good with the foreground plant occupying a RoT hotspot and coming in from the corner with diagonals of colour running through the background, it works well.

A good attempt thanks for your submission, Sid

The colors here definitely scream "FALL".

Bokeh very effective but I'm not that keen on the processing - a bit to bright/harsh for my taste.
