    either move closer to the subject, use a longer lens and wider aperature. that'll throw the background more out of focus. ALso try more unique angles.

    the color and harshness of that bokeh is very distracting. a tad bit oversaturated for me. I like the composition.

    white balance is too warm.

    get better glass with smoother bokeh....preferably with an f/2.8 or larger.
