Can somebody explain me when an out of focus image is considered beautiful and when it is not?
I use shallow DoF when I want to make attention onto the subject, who is usually my wife or my child . I usually don't take too much attention about the out of focus image (background).
So when bokeh is beautiful?
I think it is considered as "beautiful" when it is not distracting... To me the concept is meaningless as I consider a picture as a whole and I am not willing to detail one part of it or an other unless the picture has no interest (but in this case I switch to something else).
