Bokeh Try
Lens: 300mm Camera: K10D ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F8 

Here is an attempt at bokeh taken last fall. Let me know what you think.

I like it, you could have used a wider aperture to increase the bokeh effect but as it is, it's a good shot. You might want to crop out that object on the left edge near the top though.

I think that colors are not vivid enough. Plus this grey almost uniform background is not really pleasant to me.

Well done, esp. for f/8...can only imagine what more open would've done...great job on the edits.

Much better Ray. The adjustments change the whole image. JIM

PS: Try a small crop on the right. I t should draw you eye across the image a little better, though I always tend to crop more these days. JIM
