Switch off the auto focus and then turn the ring to get the colored blurred circles, frame the bridge perspective leading to the black human silhouette.

You certainly are having fun and good results experimenting with various functions on and off.
Love the coloured circles especially the yellow and orange, the ghost figure gives it a spooky mood, very abstract, love it well done, looking forward to more.

I love what you are doing ... pushing the limits, finding new boundaries. You are right, this is a dream, we can use our own imaginations to decide which dream.
The composition is still very well considered.
Have a great day,

Hello Claude - This creative shot opens up the doors to the viewer's imagination; I like that. Again I take note of the few suggestive elements which do not dictate but invite me to participate. A refreshing and successful image. Nicely done! Warm regards Rosemary

Très cinématographique comme ambiance.
Mais avec une approche un peu trop radicale (pour moi en tout cas). Je m'explique, il manque un point d'ancrage sur lequel on pourrait se rattacher dans la lecture de la photo: par exemple avoir en premier plan la silhouette que l'on devine au loin et peut être l'avoir un peu plus nette.
J'ai en tête de faire des portraits dans la rue en jouant sur le bokeh des lumières en arrière plan. Il y a un article qui était paru dans Compétence Photo (je crois) il y a quelques mois.

la silhouette humaine est peut-être un tout petit peu loin mais l'essai est quand même bien réussi.

A poor crop on today's TE session if you ask me, but luckily picture stands out. A loud and clear sign of quality & hope. Art among the snaps! Thanks for posting!

J'aurais pu appeler cette image nuit et brouillard mais il y a tellement de lucioles que j'adopte le mot "rêve".

penso che queste foto vengano cestinate immediatamente, mentre invece, ci dimostri che possono essere delle foto molto belle, basta saperle interpretare e presentare, ovvimante, bisogna saperle fare...

I love your unique and creative way of seeing things, and this is a perfect example! So often we try to make sure everything is in focus, capturing each and every detail...but this is just as effective, if not even more so. The "thinking out of the box" application works superbly here, creating a sense of wonderment and that dreamy kind of mood. It really makes me stop and take notice, opening up a world of interpretations. Lovely imagery and concept. Bravo! Have a great day ahead.

Very good unsharp colours, unsharp details and unsharp composition. Very good idea
williewhistler (16193) 2014-02-06 3:51
a very imaginative and rather surreal photograph that is open to any interpretation that you wish ti choose..
The vignette effect around the lone figure combined with the brighter lights works very well.
Best regards Les.

This becomes an interesting blurry abstraction, a brilliant piece of photography which has allowed you to think outside of the photographic book of rules and produce a rather pleasing composition which I really admire. Those multi colour-popping showing through and excellent all around but the sharp reds are important as they give the eye somewhere to settle upon and lead finally into the scene and eventually to fig. I like this very much, it's a very attractive effect and beautifully composed and timed. Despite all your skills, creative and imagination you've captured a natural winner on many levels. Brilliant!

Only a good street photographer understands how to create bokeh with such creative and imaginative effect.

J'aime bien cette image, toute en suggestion
Bel effet des ronds colorés motion blurred
bonne soirée, amicalement

Yeux embrumés, la nuit devient merveilleuses avec toutes ces taches multicolores.
Une idée originale bien présentée.
Très bonne journée.

Impressive shot! Taken at the right moment to capture such a lovely palette of colorful city lights. Artistic pic. TFS!
Have a nice day!

good photography lesson for us and a real "immerse" into a dreamland.Evocative and working strong on our imagination picture.
Have a nice day

wow! It is really a dream. Like your presentation Claude... Vibrant colours in out of focus bokeh form made it interesting and the presence of that couple in silhouette nicely complete the composition. Superb work. Really enjoyed it. Tfs.

Very creative and original post, I like it! It does reminds one of a fuzzy dream. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Night time summarised here, without giving any of it's secrets away, leaving a sense of it's mystery, and it's dreamlike colours.

I think I can say it for most of us, these types of photos are always enjoyable to view and even more fun to capture.
it must be the Christmas type of feel to it with the colored lights.

Great! I love playing with bokeh myself, they add welcome abstract qualities to otherwise boring scenes. This is one of my favs on TE.
