That is stunning my friend. Okay I'm gonna ask it because I don't know Bokeh? Is that the flower? It is beautiful my friend :) Happy Saturday :)

Carletta said...

Thom, you have so much to learn. ;)
It's the background. The flower is a geranium.

Carolina Mountains said...

Like the bubble effect - makes the flower really pop!

Thom said...

MWAH!!! Thank you. You don't know how much I have to learn and it's a long long long slow slow slow process LOL I never knew photography was so hard. LOL But I try and see I learned something new today. What that and the name of the flower is :) Mahalo my friend :)

Hiya,
Bokeh is supposed to be bad. I think you elevated it to an art form.
Superb when enlarged.

jay said...

Yep, that's what they are!! And isn't it funny, when we pay more attention to the background than to the subject? LOL!

It's a lovely picture, though, and the flower itself looks fragile and dainty like that.
