Found these tiny glasses with hearts on them, and they where perfect for a bokeh image. :heart:

Placed many tiny lights behind the glass, and placed it on a wooden chair.
Natural light, hand held.

Photo of the lights: [link]

Cross processing: Selective grain removal and sharpening, added blue ting, cloned away dust and cracks, minor crop.

Hope you like it, any fav and feedback is welcome and very appreciated.

Great photo, but I have one suggestion. It seems as if there is a window or some other light source reflecting in the glass. That takes away from the heart design. I think it would be a million times better if that reflection was gone, and it would be less distracting too! Aside from that, it's a very nice, but simple photo. Good work! :)

Really great bokeh shot.

Have you thought about doing another version with heart shaped bokeh, to reflect the shape in the glass?

Great lighting and focus on the subject. The twinkly lights in the background really work well. At first I thought the balance of the shot was a little off, and that the glass should be closer to the left third, but when I 'cropped' (held a piece of paper to the screen), I preferred your balance better.

I do like the juxtaposition. It is a very cute and warm image. Very nice for the winter.
