Very nice Iguanasan. Love the heart bokeh. That's exactly what we built our bokeh kits for, Christmas photos. :) They're just great aren't they

Very nice portrait Iggy. I was wondering how the heart shapes were made. At first I thought it might be a special lens filter. Bokeh kit ??? I guess thats something in PP.

Thanks everyone. You can get a bokeh kit if you want: Create Beautiful Effects with The Bokeh Kit (http://photojojo.com/store/awesomeness/bokeh-Kit/) however, I built mine myself. A piece of cardboard (an old file folder) and an exacto knife then some scotch tape to connect it to the front of my nifty fifty set at f1.8.
