Photo365 - 235 - blurred vision

I bought a Micro 4/3rd to T2 adaptor to use on my Olympus E-P2 the other day. I was messing around with different lenses and added a El Nikkor 50mm f/4 enlarging lens on the front. I just held it in place and it provided a very close focus. Infinity was way out of focus. I could move it forwards to blur even more.

I started to experiment with the out of focus views and wandered around the house looking for interesting abstracts.

This was one of them...a reading lamp.

There's a skill to getting out of focus subjects looking interesting. I hope you think I achieved that here.

Certainly adds a certain mystery to the picture.
If you hadn't said what it was I would have thought it was a person stood with hands on their hips. Mind I am on my works monitor and it is a bit on the darkish side, will ahve a better view when I get home in morning.
Skill and imagination, the secret for making and taking pictures, good ones anyway......Wink

Works very well, I think you achieved what you set out to do.

I would probably have been inclined to crop off the light part of the image on the left, since I find that it distracts somewhat from the main subject. But, having said that, I still like the image a lot.
