Trying to replicate this very peculiar DOF achieved by Magdalena Marczak in a series of images called 'Shadow'. The effect almost appears like double vision, but with a concentric ovoid profile that is apparent on the glass and plant especially.

Also, does anybody have access to a Bokeh kernel library? I assume it's really just the shape of the Bokeh map that is driving the effect + bokeh anisotropy.

Hey @burnin, yeah I messaged her on Behance and she elaborated on the method - sounds like it really depends on the Bokeh kernel.

Mostly that, but also few other factors play role, just like in photography or human vision.
Here's some stuff for reference ;)

Wonky Bokeh (B. Bernard's blog post)
DOF PRO (R. Richard's PS plugin)     

And few other engines can also generate glare & flare based on dirt or occlusion map (like dust & smudges on lenses,  eyelashes...)
