I have always loved Bokeh, so enjoyed puttting this one together.

I placed some pink and white day lillies, in with some background soft mauve flowers, in beside one of my green indoor plants in my fernery.

It looked just like a fresh spring flower bouquet.
I liked the afternoon filtered light and the bokeh circles that I captured in this floral image.

Post Quote..... I totally deserve the score I got, as I have no bokeh in the foreground, and submitted this in a hurry. I still like the photo, but just nor suirablr for this challenge..... Thanks for your honest comments.....

The colors are fun and pop.

This is fabulous, amazing lighting. I just wish I could see the foreground bokeh (I've gazed at the image for ages and still can't see it. Unless it's the OOF area on the flower on the right).

Quita an appealing image (despite it being a genre I don't usually enjoy!), BUT I just can't find the foreground bokeh. Given that this was a technical challenge, I feel constrained to give a low vote.

There's no real foreground bokeh in this though, is it? Maybe a tad... however it's really nice put-together. Nice angle.
