This was among the first group of images I voted on when I first came to DPC last fall - I only voted it a 6 back then, but I was new & apparently afraid of using either end of the voting spectrum too much. ;~) (I just checked & I gave no 10s and only one 9...)

Looking at it now, I'm really blown away by the beautiful shades in the background & truly great bokeh that lens produces. You gotta love those fast primes! Congrats on a fine composition...

I just realized that your logo for you team, "Out of Focucers" re the DPL, is made up from this wonderful soft "Bokeh" entry image.....
I really am blown away by the colors here, as there are my favorite, and also the beautiful detail of the flower.....

I thought I'd commented on this after the challenge but apparently did not. This is lovely!! Truly a very good use of bokeh, both in creating the watercolor effect and including "circles" to satisfy the bokeh police. Composition is dead on - that second strand of grass behind is critical to this, in my opinion - nice balance. And the way the colors fade from purple to a bit of blue to yellow/green is really, really nice. Great job with this!

Beautiful colors. The Bokeh certainly sets off the subject.

Back to comment - Nice colors and the background blur does have a watercolor type feel with the soft pleasing colors and patterns. You rforefront image does seem a bit soft though in focus and shadow depth. Had this been advanced editing some burning could have helped the flower bud stand out stronger I think. Maybe a elvels or curves adjustment could have helped it pop out a bit more. In general a pleasing shot just maybe not as strong as some of the other images.

Beautifully done. I like how the colors are in harmony. Slight suggestion, maybe having more of the flower in focus, or the maybe the tip. Stil a great picture.
