Playing with focus in my new lens :)


You sit in front of your computer doing stuff for the whole day and nothing happens, and then you leave the house for several hours and suddenly you get tons of likes and comments :D

This is my second appearance in Freshly Pressed. Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. You have no idea how much it motivates me to go on.

    1. Thank you. I don’t remember, actually, I’ve got my camera in 2006, so it’s five years, but I had film cameras before that, so perhaps seven years? I can’t say, really.

  1. I really love the lines in this photo. You have been able to capture an image that has me looking into the photo for a long time. I love it.

  2. Just beautiful, Ula. You are an artist in every sense of the word. Congrats on being freshly pressed — and keep shooting. You have a wonderful eye.

  3. Great picture! I love B & W in general and this shot has neat perspective. I like how the weathered look of the bench comes out. Would love to know, what time you took this picture. Congrats on Freshly Pressed :)

  4. Love this photo. This is exactly the kind of stuff I like to play with too. I love finding weird patterns and shapes and creating photos that look like abstract paintings. Some of my favorites come from fire escapes and art museums (lots of architectural stuff). Congrats!!

  5. Wonderful, as well as deep. To see more than the line takes true insight.

    1. Indeed, I might be on to something *giggles*. I have no idea what, though O_o. My photos get repeatedly denied from all the prestigious photography groups on the deviantArt.

  6. Congrats on getting FP x 2. You deserve it. I like how you’re able to give your photos a ‘filmic’ look. Love your b&ws! I look forward to seeing more.

  7. Nice picture mate. Its perspective it’s amazing….and the black and white effect gives to the photograph a special art touch.

    Congrats for being freshly pressed again :D

  8. I saw the tiny version on the Photography Tags page and knew it was Dublin so I had to click through. I love the perspective. Nice work.

  9. Wow, I really like the “focus point” on this. I would never have thought to focus a photo like that. When I first looked at the photo I loved it, then of course I started to analyze it and realized I couldn’t figure out the focus point, then I still loved the photo.

  10. I really liked his picture, black and white color adds a dramatic picture, and I am very happy with compositions that highlight the wood bench.

  11. I love this photo.. LOVE it.. I’m an ethnomusicologist just delving into visual ethnography, and thus learning the ins and outs of photography. Would love to know more about your equipment… maybe that’s another post?
