More for the Blue theme.

I wasn't sure if I preferred this or another I took of the subjects (glass beads in a champagne flute filled with water in the sun). The aperture was very wide on this shot; hence most of the items are soft directing your eye (hopefully) toward the right. My Nik commented that she didn’t like this and preferred the other shots but they didn’t really give any focal point so I went with this. Anyway see what you think.

As for the shot and the processing. I have been looking into more Photoshop techniques and so had more of a play around with this photograph, hence it looks almost illustrated. Again, love to hear what you think.

For anyone that is visiting you may notice that there aren’t too many comments. I do apparently still have traffic through imagi (if Google Analytics can be trusted) but I have yet to announce to friends about the new website. Hopefully once I do I will get a few more comments.

I wanted to wait to tell everyone until I had a bit of content on the new platform, which I now have.



I didn't say that I didn't

I didn't say that I didn't like it!

OK, I take it back

You didn't say that you didn't like the photo but you did say you preferred it if everything was in focus, which was kind of what I was saying.

Maybe I will post the other version at a later date...?
