This is kind of you to tell us how you took this shot. It is a striking image in tone, quality and uniqueness. Many congratulations Anastasiia!
Thank you very much for participating in the discussions. I really appreciate everyone's opinion of you. I am infinitely pleased that my picture is here.
I feel a huge palette of emotions and glad that my hobby allows me to learn something new about the world every day. And all of this due to the fact that each of us shares a piece of his life here.
What a great way to turn this photo into something so special. I love what you've done and not forgetting the interesting subject of the church buildings.
I wonder how you got the water drops in focus right next to the lens keeping the buildings in focus off in the distance.
Innovative, Anastasia is what you are in this shot. Thank you for perfection, of especially the lighting on those unusual churches, that seems to me have the light bouncing off the middle one, to its neighbour.The sepia tones are great. j.e.s.....
I've done that with sunglasses before, taken pictures through them. What a good picture you took. Thanks for sharing it.
Having a water-drop splattered bottle fragment in front of the camera lens has given an antiqued quality to this photo which resonates very nicely with the subject matter of the old churches. It reminds me of the imagery in tintype photos from the 1860s.
Wonderful idea using the glass with the water droplets. It is a beautiful result and appears to be almost dreamlike. Takes you back in time.
@Bev Hennager it's really very simple. Just try it and you will see the same result :)
