There have been a lot of grass shots with too little or nothing interesting in the DOF. Some may consider this a bit busy, but I find it quite interesting! I love the bokeh and I could see this hanging on wall!

I like this photo overall. I do feel that it's a bit all over the place, my eyes can't determine where to look.
