Very nice abstract. The composition is a little out of balance with the dark bottom right, but the colors are fantastic. Great shot.

I love the colors but I feel the image isn't balanced - there is too much light with only a touch of dark. Alternatively, you could go with light only and remove the black splotch altogether but as it is, it feel unsettled, and not in a good way. I do think the blur works really well though. 6

Just doesn't work for me. Even with the strong colors the blur is too much.

In my opinion, this appears to be more abstract extreme OOF, instead of something that portrays “missed focus”. But the colors are lovely. I am not very fond of the dark area in the lower right corner, but the orange and green are very beautiful!
