I had never heard of bokeh prior to this challenge, so this is a first attempt. No changes other than hue, saturation and brightness/contrast.

I added this to my favorites. I gave it a high score, but every time I see it I like it even more. The colors are beautiful, and I like the abstract feeling of the bokeh. To me, this is an perfect example of bokeh enhancing the image.

I like the background a whole bunch, but the image in focus seems over edited.

Not way excited about the foreground but it's one of the best bokehs I have seen in this challenge.

Pleasing colors and the background has a cool watercolor type feel to it. The plant up front feels like it has an odd crop to it though IMO. I feel like I need to see more of it or maybe in a different position. I do like the web lines on it.

This shot seems oversaturated - somethings unnatural about the color.

Looks like you were a little heavy handed with the shadow/highlight tool.

Excellent pastel water color effect in your bokeh!
