Bokeh effect

Having just become aware of an effect called "bokeh", I thought I would post a few photos which seem to illustrate it. It refers to the way points of light in a photograph are rendered. This effect can be created by an editing program such as Photoshop or (as in the cases below) can be created simply by the choice of aperture on a telephoto lens.
Photo edited examples are shown here:


  1. Ah, so it's related to DOF, but there's a little more to it. Thanks.

  2. Too technical for me! I just like the photos, especially the last two! Flighty xx
