Bokeh 500 PF: the ugly, the standard, the arsty/hot mess

Shooting through close branches and subject, or cluttered background just not far away enough.

If your subject cooperates and moves to a more favorable background one can get the Standard:

And then the unplanned/dumb luck, too close to subject, close background, strong backlight, gets the Artsy (not for all) Dreamy? or Hot Mess (all in ones preference):
