Have you heard about "bokeh"?

In photography, bokeh actually refer for the blur or the aesthetic quality of the blur. Bokeh is often most visible around small background highlights, such as specular reflections and light sources, which is why it is often associated with such areas. However, bokeh is not limited to highlights, as blur occurs in all out-of-focus regions of the image.
