Fun with Bokeh and Christmas Lights

Boken is essentially the aesthetic quality of the the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Although it is part of nearly every image to some degree it is often used to make spectacular images this time of year with Christmas lights.
The image to the right is an example of this common, if not over-used effect.

But with a little extra effort you can make something a little bit out of the ordinary.
