I took a bunch of pictures for this challenge and had a lot of fun doing so. I ended up with about maybe 15 images I could have submitted and felt good about. This was my favorite of them however.

Post work was minimal. I resized the image and bumped the saturation a tiny bit.

Pleasing smooth bokeh on a nice floral subject. Image appears very flat so you might want to consider upping the contrast. Warm tones are OK, but it weakens the green color of the leaves considerably, so you might have overdone it. In images like this you might want to try out 'autocontrast', 'autocolor' and/or 'autolevels' adjustments first with your image editor if it has the ability to do that. You would not necessarily accept those adjustments but they will give you an idea where the weaknesses of an image might be. Typically, after post processing you will normally see little or no change applying those functions.

I like the bokeh but not the colour cast, slightly less orange would be an improvement

I think the yellow flower should be in even better focus.
