    The twin eyebrows on the lights intrigued me too. I don't think it is lens defect Steve because the other photo I took in the main did not do the same thing. There were black wires forming a V to each fairy light and I think those plus the elongated shape of the bulbs were the culprits.
I would normally have cloned them out but took the order not to PP the bokeh literally and did not touch them.

I agree with some that the bokeh is very dominant. I was concentrating on some writers on bokeh who were interested in the "spectacular".
Whatever I learnt a lot and for a half day of my strict isolation during our second wave here in Melbourne, I was blissfully occupied and happy.

    Very nice image. The bokeh has an odd pattern in it. I wonder if that is a lens defect.

    Good job of shooting the fabric rose - it looks great. I don't know what caused the black specs in the bokeh but I find them very distracting.

    Oh lovely! A bit cliche perhaps but it came out so pretty.

    I find the Flower and the bokeh compete in this composition.

    The background is flashing Fairy lights. They are hung from the top of a white studio screen, and it is about 6ft behind the rose.

    The bokeh you have created is a beautiful backdrop to this perfect rose. I would love to know how achieved this kind of pattern in your background.

    A most creative use of bokeh. The pastels make this a pleasing image.

    Lovely image! I love the bokeh in this and the contrast between warm and cool tones.

    I really like the colour contrast between background and foreground. The effect of the background lights is great, but it is a shame that there is a repeated mark on the bokeh.
