Redo on does this work

A bit more closer to a true 16:9 with a bit of cloning here and there.

This seems to be a good example of a... bad bokeh. By that I mean not just unpleasant in itself, but actually distracting from the main subject.

I think the initial idea is ok. It's just that it might work better with a different treatment, like a shallower DOF and less contrast. It also looks like the light was too harsh, resulting in burned out highlights.

Thanks for putting my thoughts into words!

I actually think the bokeh is more interesting than the subject.....

Really as looking for the separation for subject and bokeh.

Okay. That's a fair test. I do that kind of thing all the time. But is it a picture you want to post?
