Everybody, this is Rich. Rich, this is everybody!

Normally one would expect out of focus bokeh to detract from, rather than enhance, a portrait – at least that is what some of the people-who-think-they-know-it-all would say, as traditionalists. But the portrait is strong enough on its own to hold the attention, and the bokeh on the left lead the eye in. It’s unusual and, it’s an unusually good portrait. Well done!
