Weekly Challenge #455 - Lively Bokeh
Posted By: Hattifnatt, 04-10-2019, 02:22 AM

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #455 - LIVELY BOKEH

Thanks Charlie for an interesting challenge last week and to all who participated.

Simply put, bokeh is the pleasing or aesthetic quality of out-of-focus blur in a photograph. However, when I'm trying to achieve this effect, I always struggle to have something interesting actually happening in the out-of-focus areas, as opposed to something more static like a texture or just light bubbles. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't but I always have fun trying. So, for this week's challenge I want to see your bokeh come to life.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

The Challenge will run until midnight next Wednesday, April 17, whichever time zone you are in.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

The challenge is now closed, I will post the winners later today or tomorrow.

Later edit: since I'm away from home and unable to do proper judgement, if you don't mind I will reopen the challenge until tomorrow at noon.
