Nice composition, but the attention remains on the mason work, and I'd like to see it drawn down the road. This might not have been the best subject for 'bokeh', per se. If the road were in focus, the lines would pull the viewer's eye down th road, so they'd wonder what it led to.

As is, the mason work needs to be sharper and burn in the corners so they're not as distracting.

Could this have also worked the other way round (foreground out of focus)? As it is, I'd rate it higher if the star thing itself appeared imore sharply in focus. It's a good idea, though. 6.

Good idea but not executed. To me at least it looks like nothing is in focus in this shot and that is its biggest weaknes IMO. I like that it´s BW though and the tones in it and the centered framing works well here. Just get it in focus next time and you will have a great shot.

I am finding this picture rather dull, the subject which I assume is in the foreground is out of focus. This picture does not appeal to me at all. (4)

Wow. Very immersive. You'll probably get comments on technical issues such as focus but it works for me regardless. The black and white was a great idea. Truely inspired. The title tops it off. Good Luck.
