Thanks, bazz! (I have versions of this shot with some of my $20 screw mounts, it just happens that I liked the placement of the lights best with the 77 LTD.)

Perhaps the most exciting image in this challenge exploting the qualities of a sharp bokeh effect.

Very nice. Interesting bokeh -- it seems different lights created different shapes (and I don't just mean as refracted in the glass).
