Mardi Gras Bokeh

Mardi Gras Bokeh

I don’t think this is a particularly strong shot, but I just love the way the bokeh came out. Bokeh is a photographer’s term that describes the out of focus elements of the picture. In this case you can see the circular orbs of the light reflecting off the tree leaves on the top of the photo and colourful circles on the right of the picture.

Sometimes, lenses are judged by the way they render the bokeh, in addition to the sharpness, fastness and other things. You can throw five photographers into a room with some bokehlicious pictures and they would have a big argument.
