flower and a spiraling bokeh.. (explored, front page)

Newer Older

Some more experiments :). I'm still trying out more bokeh shot and this is the first time I have a flower in one of my shots. Its not that I don't like flowers but I've never thought of shooting flowers so far. I still can't make up my mind whether I like this one or not but decided to upload it to Flickr anyway and see what you guys have to say about it.

We have a spiraling staircase at my house in Hyderabad, India and I was fascinated by all the formation of lights on it. Initially I just shot the staircase by itself and I did manage to get a good bokeh and a very interesting image but then I decided to add a flower to it and I think it makes for a better photo.

Comments and critiques are very welcome. Thanks for all your encouraging comments on my previous image.

    Love the spiral - not so sure about the flower, be interesting to see the spiral stairs alone.
