THANK YOU to everyone who chimed in in comments or on Twitter; I decided to go with the first picture based on your input and because the warm colors remind me of the cool season. :)
This week's challenge for Secret Agent Mama's "Picture it Outside of the Box" is "bokeh." Because I can't make a blasted decision, and because readers were helpful last time, I thought I'd solicit your opinions to help me choose.
Do you mind telling me your favorite below and why? Sometimes it really helps to see an image through your eyes!
