Photography is a lot about perception, likes and dislikes.
An area of note is bokeh, it can make or break a photo much the same as HDR.
I like the bokeh in this photo courtesy of a Zeiss lens but I also like the bokeh Meyer Optik Gorlitz optics can produce which can really be over the top and all about the “look” a person is going for.
Bokeh is often touted , often enough for a lens to be accompanied by a superlative of being the king of bokeh .
Something of a buyer beware for me when added as a sales incentive which it often is along with a non applicable “rare” designation for some undeserving lenses.
