Description Another of those photos that just gets lost on my HD. I take so much more than uploads can handle - a photography addict if you will
This is to go along with my Bokeh Origami series (I guess having 3 photos based on photographing origami and bokeh now makes me eligible to make a series out of it?). I might put some more thought into more of such photos - but right now I have so many photos on my laptop it's going to explode Result of getting a new lens and traveling over a couple of months
These are cute little stars made from strips of paper - I had a sudden craze over them at the end of last year and spent hours folding more stars than this jar could hold All the time I spent folding them I had this picture in my head. Now you get to see it (:
Bokeh is real
Equipment Canon EOS 600D Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Post-processing in Adobe Photoshop CS5
First off, I love that you added some meaning behind the photo! I see so many jar/bokeh shots, but they really don't touch the reader emotionally at all. When I look at this, I actually feel the peacefully and warmness that radiate from the jar, and I can also relate more with the quote you added in the description. Wonderful work!
I also love your choice of a simple, dark background. The purple contrasts beautifully with the yellows, pinks, and light blues from the jar - as well as the bokeh!
The focus also works extremely well for this photo. The foreground is sharp and in detail, and while it's not a huge difference, the bokeh and background is blurred which adds depth to the photo and also draws our eye to the foreground.
The photo does seem to have a slight horizontal tilt which I noticed early on - but honestly, that's the only thing I'd change here!
