I just did something similar to this shot in the Rhythm challenge. But thought it portrayed Bokeh excellant, and a number of people even pointed that out. I don't think this will do as well, but I was very happy with the end result. Shot this at my Father-In-Laws pond. It was a type of grass I believe. Sprayed with water and took about 4 shots. I thought the green with blues contrasted very nicely. Hope everyone enjoys.

hmm - i'm not a huge proponent of using borders unless there is a strong need for them - but this is a good composition and an interesting subject - good bokeh use as well

like the way subject fills the complete frame. bokeh helps isolating the main subject nicely. 8
