Very nice background, but there isnt quite enough of the foreground plant in sharp focus to really justify it being in the shot at all. With the leaves extending a reasonable distance back into the shot, and fact that the leaves are pointing in a lot of different directions makes it hard to get a lot of the green in focus, while still maintaining the background blur, so what I would have done if possible, is isolate a smaller amount of the grean foreground leaves, perhaps by zooming (preferably) or moving closer. That way the sharp field of depth you do have would be put to better use, and more of the foreground would be in focus. Still a lovely shot, well done :)

Not a bad bokeh but your subject is off focus...

Excellent bokeh for the background! For me, I wish the subject, the green plant, were in sharper focus overall.

I feel the plant is not focused enough.

I would like this better if the leaves were more in focus.

This would be better if the foliage in the foreground were in focus and not so highly exposed, I think.

The bokeh's really fine, just wish there had been a more interesting subject.

Colors are real nice but if there is main object shouldnt it be in focus?

Out of focus subject and overbearing bokeh

I like the pictures but I can't make out what is in focus. It looks like it is either at the very far left or posibly cropped out.

This is very nice with the composition, the colors, the contrast and the bokeh but, I think it would do better if the leaves were more sharply focused. One of my higher scores for this challenge.
