I love this one! The bokeh is absolutely beautiful, and the cookies look so tasty that I'm going to stop voting right now and get something to eat. See what you did to me? If I get fat, it's your fault. :) This is one of my favourites, it's good to look at, and has a good feel. ~10

Not what I would consider boken, to much detail in background to me.

Nice. Nice colors and shapes. A clean pleasant feel and the background is an excellent compliment to the cookies up front. Maybe not bokeh in the doughnut sense but I think it works well.
