Not my best bokeh shot. Probably will get about 4.5 due to the white. Did not enter last couple of challenges so want get something in there. Good bokeh shot was taken about 2 days before challenge began so I couldn\\\'t use it.

I'll attribute the 26 scores below 3 to those who have no idea what bokeh is. Thanks for tanking my score though ;-).

you've got good bokeh, but the floom is not fully focused. The shadows are distracting, and the composition could use some help.

Beautiful idea, the orange on blueish background is good, the bokeh is great. The main flower is a bit soft, and I wish the other part flower were not in the picture. I don't particularily like the border, it makes a delicate image look a bit in your face.

I like this picture - but I do find the border a little distracting. Perhaps if it was a little narrower....

Nice smooth bokeh, surrounds pansy nicely. You might consider off setting the position of the pansy and applying more sharpening.

I don't vote down an image because of its border, but do find it to be a distraction in this composition. Works, though, if you are an Oregon State University or Oklahoma State University fan.

The colours in the photo are beautiful and the bokeh supports the subject well. I don't normally mind borders but I think this one robs the image of its impact.

Your background is good but the flower is too centered and not in focus. The orange border is really too much, a simple black border would be better.

Looks like the focus is off...

Nice colors, but I wish the flower was in sharper focus. Maybe a wider DoF or faster shutter speed would have helped?
