Chilling out

By alistairfarrugia    
This was taken at Boboli Gardens, in Florence. Whilst the wife was asleep on the grass, I noticed the many relaxed individuals around me. I wanted to capture that mood of relaxation and chilling out one experiences in such wonderful gardens. I placed the camera on the ground, focused on a nearby set of flowers and made sure that the background would be a blur of what is clearly people relaxing. This isn't a shot about the persons in the picture, it's about how one feels when surrounded by such a relaxing atmosphere, and I hope the shot works to that effect.

As ever with my work, comments, critique, mods and votes welcome! Thank you!!

Shot using the EF-S 55-250mm lens, at 55mm, ISO 125*, Aperture f/4, and 1/800" shutter speed.

*Was using Auto ISO, 125 is not selectable.

Informative and interesting pre-narrative supported by a fantastic image Alistair. The low point of view and large aperture working as one perfectly...
