This is my first challenge submission...please be kind :).

I was going for something different, the cigs being the focus and the skull the out-of-focus foreground. It was dark outside, as I was sitting on the backporch attempting to compose a picture, and trying to mess with some different settings on the camera. The limited light allowed me to remove the skull out of the picture, making it seem see-through.

It's not clear to me what this has to do with Bokeh.

Not really sure if this counts as bokeh but I guess the blurry part does have impact the image. I get the message of the pic but the image just doesnt seem like a strong picture to me.

Interesting multiple exposure in high key. Don't see the bokeh.

An interesting shot, but bokeh and double exposure are not one in the same.

Sorry, I don't see the bokeh here. Also, the shot's dimensions seem a bit small.
