This was a really great challenge for me as I never really shot foreground Bokeh before being fairly new to photography.

It was a lovely sunny day and was getting ready to shoot for the topless challenge when I thought of this sunflower field. Changed my mind and went for the Bokeh one instead.

Battled to decide which shot to use, and went with this one the end. Hope it wasn't a mistake :-(

Very well done. Bokeh is truly in the foreground for this (and not many have met the challenge well). And a nice image also. Well done.

The amount of bokeh overtakes the main focus of the picture.

Nice concept. Like how you left the brown in the corner for added context. Bigger (640) would have been better. Difficult, but perhaps a little more sunflowers in 'the rear'.

looks like a great scene with good light. although that much foreground bokeh is also not a good thing, would have liked to see this with only the left bottom quadrant in foreground bokeh. 7
