No filter hung. The background was just the sky peeping through the trees and I had a very short dof. By the way what is bokeh. Ive seent that word used often.

Bokeh is the out of focus (oof) background. Often times when shooting a subject, if you can achieve a smooth clean oof background, it will help to accentuate the sharpness and contrast of the subject. Good bokeh helps isolate and make the subject stand out more.
