Not enough in focus here. Bokeh is a blurry background or foreground that enhances an in focus subject. Also you color balance is off, you have a blue color cast over your entire image.

The lack of in-focus subject in the foreground (or anywhere, really) makes this just a horribly out of focus shot.

I think something should be in focus and it probably needs color corrected. Better luck next time!

The challenge was to take a photo whose subject is enhanced by the bokeh of the background... Im sorry, but this whole photo is blurred with no enhanced subject to look at.

just out of focus,not bokeh.
06/24/2006 03:44:39 PM
nothing is in focus and something should be

Not quite what is needed but a very good try.

In my opinion...DNMC.

Looks like a image where the camera moved and not a blurred fore/background due to focus.

The focusing of this image really bothers me quite a lot.....
06/23/2006 01:04:38 AM
to me I didnt get it, it just reminded me of a bad photo, I felt like I had to go and get my glasses

Good bokeh, but no in focus object that is being enhanced by it.
06/22/2006 07:30:52 PM
all blur - you might yet challenge me for the brown here
06/22/2006 04:44:04 PM
Now HERE'S our finest brownie candidate. 10

There really is no focus point, and this dnmc

The bokeh is very nice but the main subject is not very strong.
06/21/2006 09:49:46 PM
nothing is in focus..
06/21/2006 03:44:44 PM
Going for the brown, eh? I honestly can't think of another reason to submit something like this... :/

there isn't much in focus to contrast with the blur in the background. something focused in front, even a gate or a "closed" sign would add a lot to your picture and title. at present I have nothing to focus on as a viewer.
06/21/2006 10:04:16 AM
I don't see anything in focus.
06/21/2006 12:25:35 AM
What's the subject that's in clear focus?
