Holiday Magic

Fooling around trying to get some bokeh produced some cool results.

This is the tree's reflection in the glass door of our entertainment center.

Here's what I was doing:
I put my camera on aperture priority.
The only lights on were the Christmas tree lights and the TV.
I held my hand in front of the camera, focused on it to make the background all blurry, pulled my hand away, then quickly clicked the shutter button the rest of the way down.
I didn't get my hand out of the way fast enough on this one but I love the effect of my fingers playing with the bokeh.

Happy Holidays!

It looks like you are holding bokeh in your hand.
