Hi. This is hard to vote on as it looks softened after the fact, rather than OOF. I really like the picture though and will give benefit of the doubt.

The bokeh is about as out-of-focus as mine, but you got a better subject. Mine is fat.

I can't really see the bokeh in this picture... the whole pic has a very soft focus and the brightness of the pond takes away from the main subject.

Perhaps viewing a larger image would show some form of BOKEH here, but I don't see it by viewing it here.

Great image though. If I were to go looking for a portrait location, I'd love to have this spot. Try a wider aperture next time as the background may be a bit too much in focus for a portrait.

This is a nicely composed and exposed picture, but I think the background is too close to being in focus to be bokeh.

A very nice picture, but I see soft focus rather than bokeh.

Beautiful shot, but I'd ditch the border.

I can see you were going for a romantic portrait. Her pose and expression are nice. The light is a bit harsh throughout the image...it casts heavy shadows on your model's face and creates a difficult exposure with the background. I'd like to see more blur in the background to help set the model off. Compositionally, I think she's too near the left of the frame almost creating a merger. It's the details that make or break an image.

This really looks like you used a glow or soft focus filter??

The small picture does lose the impact of going for a full size allowable.

A little advice... the color frames are very distracting it makes a photo look bad... Your photo is good, but the frame is not... try to use less distractive frames, like in white or black... or in neutral colors... or don't frame pictures at all.
Bye bye!
