Half way into voting I get a validation request - not sure why since it's a pretty basic shot. I would imagine any photographer knows how to get shaped bokeh (especially those on the SC).

Anyway, I own the Bokeh Masters Kit and one of the shapes is a heart, but you could easily make it yourself.

Colours were adjusted in PSP to pink (much prettier than the original colours) and that's practically all the editing aside from crop, sharpen & noise reduction.

Like the floating hearts - takes it out of the realm of what has been done before.

There are not many decent shots in this challenge. This one stands head and shoulders above the others. I particularly like the ethereal heart lights. The scuff on the bottom of the book on the left of the frame is a shame - it could of course be removed in advanced but alas not in basic. This will be front page for sure, and is my oick for the blue.

Nice... presume you put a cutout over the lens to create heart shaped bokeh. Very well done. 10
