The background is a blur…

“Slight changes simply make a blur.” – J. R. R. Tolkien

Sophia’s challenge for this week is to show “bokeh” on our featured photos.

According to Wikipedia, in photography, bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in out-of-focus parts of an image.

Here are some nature shots that I used this effect to put more emphasis on the part that I want to focus on.

  1. Really pretty. I was a bit at a loss when I saw this theme. I can’t even pronounce it. 😀 Then I went on a walk and clicked away and we’ll see. Yours work really well.

      Sometimes my photos would just appear that way by accident or by luck. And true I didn’t really know what it meant before this challenge. Haha ok have fun clicking away Manja ❤️
