Light on the River by pflaume

Light on the River

I was shooting down the bank of the river where the light was dancing on the water. I like the glowing leaves, sparkling bokeh, and the almost double exposure effect of the branches.

@shepherdmanswife Thank you so much! That happens to me, too. I am starting to recognize bokeh opportunities more and more though. I have a lot of luck with my telephoto lens, zooming in as close as I can to my subject. There has to be small light points in the background - for example, light coming through the canopy of a tree or in this case, sparkling on the water. You also have to have your aperture open wide. Here is a little video that I found that explains it better than I can. Thank you for your comment and fav! http://lifehacker.com/5978014/create-beautiful-bokeh-effects-with-these-three-camera-rules
