Day 214 - Bokeh

I recently got a clear piece of Acrylic from a home improvement store for about $4 for an 11x14 sheet and spray painted the back side with flat black paint.  I almost goofed on this shot by not gelling my flash and shooting in Daytime whitebalance, when I realized the colors where not coming out as expected I remember that the X-mas lights are tungsten.  Throw on a CTO Gel and change the camera white balance and problem solved.  Looking at the bokeh balls, I think it is time to clean the rear lens element.
