Sorry, but I don't really consider the reflection of water as bokeh. My definition of bokeh is blur that is created via camera technique for instance zoom or wide open aperture, not via slight blur created in nature.
Its a nice image, and I like the green on the left contrasting with the dead branches. But this just doesn't meet the challenge for me.

Nice composition, but I must be missing the foreground bokeh.

I'm sorry but I don't see any bokeh in the foregroud... The closest tree I can see seems to be in perfect focus. The blur in the water reflection looks more like a result of ripples on the water surface... A nice image anyway if not for the bokeh challenge.

I'm not sure if reflections actually count as bokeh, but nice photo anyway.

This is a nice shot but I'm not finding a clear subject. I find my eye desperately looking for something to focus on and not finding it. Maybe zooming more tightly on the brown bit of land towards the left would make it more prominent and made the image stronger.

Hmm, a stretch, I think. It feels like the subject is more blurred because of the water movement than because of distance from the focal plane.
