  Current challenge: #232 Bokeh
Bokeh is a Japanese word that roughly translates as the aesthetic quality of the blur. The technique uses depth of field to isolate a subject against a background that is out of focus. The subject matter is in sharp focus thereby emphasizing the subject while hinting at a sense of place without specificity. So, for this challenge, show us a photo where the subject is isolated from the background by using Bokeh. This technique should be attempted using your camera only, NOT in post-processing. See the following link for more info: https://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/bokeh-in-photography-to-isolate-a-subject/ Post processing information will be hidden during the voting period. As usual, please disclose any use of multiple frames in the Extra Info area. The winner of the Main Challenge will chose the next challenge theme.
