The Lion by berndt2

Currently unavailable for purchase

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!!
