Impressionism through the lens

Posted by

My backyard, with the Japanese maple tree and its bright spring foliage, shot as a bokeh. Probably this is how Monet would have visualised the scene. (This effect was not achieved using Photoshop). This is an experiment - I wanted to try something new with an old subject. Please provide feedback on whether it worked on not.

SONY DSC-W5 1/100 second F/2.8 ISO 100 8 mm

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
