Just a reminder that there is not much time left to get focused on producing attractive out of focus Smile

The out of focus I can do. Trying to get some bokey but it's all going a bit pokey. Sad

Dinner done and cleared. You folks don't make judging easy with some great images:

Chris - Mr Ducky looks quite a character with his bokeh halo
Malc - I like the bokeh double take
David - like it but doesn't meet the rules of being taken in the week of the challenge.
Pete - great clouds of blossom bokeh
Merlin - weird daisy - are you sure its not a pastry brush?
Eddie - we can see you are having a good time in Hastings - love the blurry bottles
Dave - looks like the flower is overcoming all odds to survive with the mysterious building in the background
Jack - you seem a little obsessed with your little friend (treatment may be available) and his snowstorm bokeh
IL - pleasing little fluffy flower head bokeh
Linda - lovely composition and glass highlights - we'll take your word that it was water and not something stronger

My virtual bouquet for the bokeh winner goes to Linda - well done and over to you.

Congratulations Linda, a wonderful picture.
And yes, that is a red daisy, although I agree it doesn't look exactly organic!

Ooh! Thank you Phil. 😃 I have to admit to struggling to come up with an idea for this week's challenge...mainly because I'm so exhausted with work at the moment. Sure I missed lots of other opportunities during the week.

And yes, it was definitely just water ... though I will confess to having had a tipple or 2 as well this evening.

The book is actually the one that inspired my research for my qualification. So it finally came in useful for something! 😉

It's my bed time now so I'll sleep on things and post a new challenge tomorrow.
