i love bokeh, but i have a hard time with it.. i'm very picky about how i want the bokeh to turn out.. i enjoy the many sparkly prisms behind the subject.. but as much as i like it, i am very new to trying my hand at it..

i tried it in monochrome but i kept going back to the dreamy pink background..

This is the kind of bokeh that I am usually most fond of, when the whole background becomes creamy and dreamy. Especially for portraits.
Some people don't think of that as bokeh, but in Japanese it means blurred.
Your shot is lovely with the creamy bokeh you achieved!

thanks Laurie.. i like playing  with it and hopefully i will get the bokeh shot i dream of.. i'm not sure why it's such a challenge to me.. but i like a challenge nonetheless..
