Bokeh is the blur,or the asthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light.” Bokeh can make a mundane image very dramatic.

Contest goal:
Things can become really strange when looking at a reflection of a, seemingly, ordinary object. Lets see some of that magic.
