best supporting bokeh

I think of bokeh -- lovely, inexplicable, often misunderstood -- as the supporting cast & crew in the drama of a photo.  Not the lead but the stand-in, the lighting director, the prop mistress, the make-up man.  Without bokeh, the main character can be flat, lifeless, light-less.  With it, there just might be a standing ovation.

In my photo above, bokeh's getting ready to take a bow.  In Elizabeth Glass's photo below, bokeh's whooping it up at the cast party. 


Until next time.

Stunning! I still have to try to get bokeh "on purpose" - maybe a weekend project!

The round and sparkle kind of bokeh is exciting and catches your eye pretty quick...but this creamy smooth bokeh is just breathtaking.

I agree. This creamy, soft bokeh is absolutely amazing. It isn't the type that you would expect to find in a post about the "best supporting bokeh" but it is an excellent example of bokeh that supports a photo.
