Flower Photo Competition 3 2016 : Entry Number 96

Judges Comment

Something a bit different! These flowers are out of focus. These gladiolus are blurry, almost abstract. And still the observer can see exactly what kind of flowers they are - and the blurriness adds to their special appearance.

Photographers Comment

Thank you very much for this award and for your comments. I am very happy to have 2 of my photographs chosen in the same competition. Wonderful. My name is Alexandre Machado, I am a free-time photographer based in Copenhagen. I have used a Nikon D3X and Nikkor AF 55 2,8 micro for this shot. This photograph is part of my experiments with flowers and motion. I have done some small adjustments in lightroom 4.
