I simply define it as any out of focus areas due to shallow depth of field, leaves room for a lot of experimenting and creativity. Of course, I guess everyone can define it the way they personally want to as long as it pleases them. I am finding that as I go along that I seem to be more interested in just making my own self happy when I go do my own personal shooting and I can't say I felt as strong about that when I first started. Here's a couple fence pics That I enjoy and they move me yet I get a good reaction only from a few people I know who are in to this type shot. But they please me and I realize that in the end, it has to be enjoyable and moving to the person taking the pics and that's what matters most to me at this point. I want to find more interesting fence lines on the back roads. So this is the type bokeh that I find myself enjoying and experimenting with recently.

I agree. Out of focus areas, as long as your depth of field causes OOF areas, that's bokeh to me, and I personally would hope it is wide open for experimentation and creativity.

Perfect. That building in the bokeh is exactly what I am currently in to. It makes an actual impact. I find myself wondering what she will do if she is going to that building. So for me, this kind of bokeh shot is what I am after. We could disagree about the value of the subject in focus, that just an opinion from one person to another, but that is definitely bokeh in my book, whether the in focus subject is this woman or whether it was a fence post in focus.
