Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

This is part of my experiment which I got inspired from here, Early Christmas by Sue Richardson.

I’ve tried many different shots outdoor and indoor following her technique and so far this is the best that I could get from.

Could you guess what they are? :D.

Axis Mundi

Axis Mundi

They are some tealights that I arranged in circular form. I did some editing in Picassa from its RAW file by increasing its shadow and applied filtered BW plus soft focus. The grainy that looks apparent in this photo after I increased its shadow has created such a different dimension from the original objects. It looks like white sand or snowflakes fall down and creating snowballs. That’s my interpretation anyway. A friend of mine called this picture as Axis Mundi.

So for that reason I submit this picture for Weekly Photo Challenge with Delicate in theme!

Have a Good Friday and have a great weekend ahead to everybody! Christmas is just round the corner! 😉

  1. I never woulda guessed they started out as tealights. I thought it was 8 snowmen who stood too close to the sun and melted!! But they sure look cool, even though they got too warm!! Another exciting experiment, Inge– well done!! : )

  2. I really like the way you experiment with different techniques and ways of shooting. I am not sure how you did this even though you sort of explains it, but I like the final result.

    • Thank you very much for your supportive comment, Otto. 🙂
      I should have stated that I shot this by zooming in (or out) my lens while the camera took the photo with long exposure setting. I also stopped zooming the lens for a while to create different effect. 🙂

Thanks in advance either for having left a reply or liked my post :)
