Sparkle Backdrop

Sparkle Backdrop

I often forget how cool the bokeh produced by the ‘nifty fifty’ 50mm f1.8 lens can be – this is an example with the water drops from the fountain in the Carlton Gardens as a backdrop for the surrounding flora.

Crop, Velvia Vision, Levels, USM, Curves, Dodge/Burn.
