Thanks to everyone for their time to comment on my photo. I am thankful that you could see the bokeh in my photo. At least what I thought it was.

This is just lovely!

I came back to bump this up from an 8 to a 10, and I see you needed to validate this shot? I can't imagine why!

A beauty. It seems to radiate light. I would have cropped a bit more off the right side, to de-center the flower.

It's a wonderful shot of a flower, but I don't really think the softly blurring background is bokeh. My understanding of bokeh may be as fuzzy as the effect itself though. I like the picture and think it's well done. Not sure why it was challenged though. The composition might have been better off center.

While some will likely comment on the centered composition, I feel that the backdrop of leaves balance the composition and the bokeh is quite beautiful. Great lighting. 9

Beautiful picture but no bokeh, just a shallow DOF, by my definition.

great colors and lighting. Textbook Brokeh from my interpretation of it. The brokeh definately adds to the subject of the photo. Its a nice clean crisp and eye pleasing image. One of my top 3 picks. keep up the good work.

I hope this is doing well for you. It is a beautiful photo but I know some people may not like that the background is not that out of focus. The color and shadow work well here.

The short definition of Bokeh from KenRockwell.com, which I am using for voting on this challenge: "Bokeh describes the rendition of out-of-focus points of light." Is the subject enhanced by the bokeh of the background? For me this doesn't work as a bokeh shot. Pretty though.
