this might've not been the best photo for a bokeh challenge, but on its own its a fantastic image.

Ironically enough, this pub closed in January 2009 due to non renewal of the lease.

What a great idea. I do think that it would be more appealing if the ashtray was in the bottom 1/3 in the corner. Maybe pan to see more of the pub?

Something different. A very nice photo. Love the lighting, the composition and the cigarette smoke. Good shot.

nice shot

I like this. Your bukeh adds to the value of the picture - unlike most of the other photos in this competition. This is excellent. Now where's the beer?

Beautiful...absolutely beautiful. This deserves to win.
You really caught the spirit of a pub.
Theres a smoking ban in most pubs in Europe now so this is a very nostalgiac image to me as I used to smoke.
I hope you do well as opposed to the few dozen Christmas tree and water drop entries. Your image is original and your doing your own thing 10/10.
In fact if you crop the top so that its just the stools in the beckground it looks even better.

I don't see much bokeh there, and i think you can explore more details of the object, but the color and the light on the table are cool!

Nice brown tones. I like the lighting.

I like the layers and depth in this. Very brave use of darkness everywhere.

Minor picky point, it looks a bit like an advert because of the name on the ash-tray.

Oh wow. This certainly makes me think of "One More for the Road," the classic ballad by Sinatra. Love the story.

Evokes a feeling of tiredness. I can almost smell the stale cigarettes and spilled beer.

being that I'd never heard of Bokeh and have spent the last week trying to learn about it and finding many varying opinoins on it is a tough one to judge... i like how you can seem to get more focus but it does seem a bit dark
