Christmas Tree Bokeh

This array of colorful orbs of light is actually a standard lit-up Christmas tree…except for being a wee bit out of focus!  In photography, this kind of blur is referred to as bokeh, and this technique is often used to create photos with sharp boundaries between in-focus and out-of-focus areas (for instance, a portrait of someone where the face is nice and sharp while the background is completely blurred).  Points of light like this can create some neat effects as well, and I might try to experiment with this effect on our tree this year!
