So I really love these images that Ben does and wanted to represent him. I felt my result was a success for what I set out to do and I'm pleased with the response. My only regret, personally, is that it was more an imitation than a real "in the spirit of" but I'm still glad I did it.

Totally underrated. People need to study his work. You did.

ooh did not pick this out as yours. We had about the same idea except you did a better job at getting his kind of bokeh. Pretty!

Nice and simple with cool bokeh textures. Pleasing.

Love the title. This is VERY Bennish, although there seems to be too much "space" around the subject.

Love the painterly brush stroke bokeh. Wonderful capture of natures beauty that captures the spirit of Ben's style.

beautiful bokeh! I would possibly crop out the other sharp piece in the upper right, the rest is lovely, and worthy of Ben's work.

Has all the BEN elements.

A fitting poetic title for a classic Ben theme.

I like this because I cannot put my finger on it - on neither the title whose resonance tantalizes me by being just out of hearing, nor a subject. Like so much of Ben's work, eluding the tight grasp.
