Playing around with the Focal Length and Point of View to get a composition of this pattern without external elements. And playing around with the Depth of Field using a wide aperture to get sharp only a brief area...

Added a black frame to enhance the contrast effect and boosted slightly contrast and saturation on PaintShopPro.

These bulbs were located on the roof of the Triumphal Arc, stored there and getting old and rusty; they probably had been used before to dress the arc for some event...

Hi Galder, A good presentaion, showing one how to capture sharpness for a particular focal point, while having the remaining areas less sharp & less focused. I take it, if your focal point had been the single bulb located in the centre of this image & your chosen aperture was f/22 then all the bulbs would be in sharp focus of course you would need to change your shutter speed too.

So appealing shot Galder, the shallow depth of field creating fine atmosphere around this globes. The red color adding fine splash here. Good use of black frame! Bravo!

HI Galder,
Nice play with DOF! An interesting minimal shallow focusing on one bulb while producing such a blur all over.
Nice colors and reflection.
A nice study in photography.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier
