For whom the bell tolls

Posted by

Is this bokeh foreground too much for you ? If you like it, the bell tolls for you. (Sorry, Mr. Hemingway.)

For me, Hiro, if you ask, I have to tell you... it works perfectly ! ;) Really nice smooth red and good idea to see the bell through, sure the great Ernest would love that too ;)

@k@: Thanks, k@. Some temples allow people to toll their bell. I will ring the bell for you, maybe next time. I wish the great Ernest allow me to do it.

I like the bokeh in the foreground very much. It adds a dreamy and almost abstract feel. Nicely done!
