Yes, the top of the ornament is oof. But I wanted the light bokeh to be perfectly smooth - you don't get that stopped down. I probably should have set up a reflector to the right to fill in the shadows a bit on the ornament. The whole shoot/edit process took probably less than 20 mins.

Nice one Josh.

Makes me want to blow the dust off the 77mm limited and submit something.

I would have preferred the ornament to pop out a bit more from the background.

really, really wonderful bokeh, the image is too dark. i could have easily scored this a 9, however i can barely make out the ornament.

is you monitor too bright hen you edit?

Perfect bokeh. So colorful and pretty, although I think it overpowers the ornament.

Very nice. Maybe a little over processed but if this is the look you like, great.
