I think what I like about this shot is that the out-of-focus background is more important and emphasised by the foreground detail. (I’d like to say it was deliberate….!)
.. and taken on film!

Bernd Talasch doesn’t remember being hatched in a research laboratory in Omaha in the late 1950s so maybe that never happened. (Placeholder bio – remember to replace).
Fantastic shot! That looks like a pretty special looking painting back there… Love the Lion standing watch…Venice Huh! Is there anything ugly in Venice? Doesn’t seem to be.This one’s a favourite!
I see what you mean, i think it really works well with the background out of focus, the elements compliment one another rather than fighting each other……i like it!!
Awesome photo for all the above reasons! I think you are spot on, looks great!!!
Impressive… and not just the lion!
Congratulations on such a fine image!
Fantabulous!!!! excellent comp and dof… to my favs
Oh very beautiful, love the lighting and just enough focus to see the mural in the bg
I collect winged Lions, into the faves it goes! Nice green monotone vs. full color too!
