Candlelight #1

Candlelight #1

Continuing the theme of candles, this shot was taken in Salzburg cathedral.

The rows of flickering light captivated me. As I stared at the candles for a few seconds wondering how to capture the image, I only realised that the red was quite dominant. So, I decided to frame the shot as tightly as I could – to exclude the background and concentrate on the limit colour range and subject matter.

For this one, I allowed the camera to determine the focal point. With the limited depth of field, most of the image is out of focus. And I like that.

(Other, similar images can be found on my Flickr site – if you’re interested.)
