Bokeh

Bokeh (from the Japanese boke ぼけ, “blur”) is a photographic term referring to distorted out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens.[1] Different lens bokeh produces different aesthetic qualities in out-of-focus backgrounds, which are often used to reduce distractions and emphasize the primary subject. [from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh ]

When I first saw the term I hadn’t have even the most remote idea on what it meant, but a quick right-click > Search Google for “bokeh” save the day. However, it was only until recently that I got a grasp of the difference between a “beautiful bokeh” and a “not so beautiful bokeh”. And this picture, was one of the first (I took) to illustrate the former one – in my opinion 🙂
