December Challenge: Creating Bokeh

This challenge is about using Bokeh to enhance the focus/subject of your image.

Bokeh is the effect of creating a blur or haze, soft, out-of-focus background.
It is often used on portraits, and closeup/ macro shots.
It is achieved by a very fast lens, large aperture, shallow depth of field, and by creating greater distance between focus subject and background.
Depending on the lights and the lens, sometimes blurry light shapes may be created in the background.

Showcase your bokeh shots. Take a new photo, or find one in your stash , then scrap a page or an ATC.
Post your completed challenge in this thread, and link to the designer of your scrap items.
Remember to post in your thread in the Challenge tracking too.
Score 1 wrapper for your page/card, or 2 wrappers for using Plain Digital Wrapper scrap items.

Here is my fungi with a hazy background.



Beautiful page. This is a technique I would like to master. Thanks for the challenge...I'll see what I can do.
