One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2014—Sparkling Glass

Friday’s theme in my Flickr daily challenge group was ‘glass.’ This French canning jar (made in China, I’m certain) was setting on my kitchen counter and I thought it would work for the challenge. The first shots were a bit lackluster even after I changed it to black and white. Because I didn’t add any artificial light and had only some window light from an overcast sky, I decided to add Xmas lights for a little sparkle. I took one shot using a very small aperture to get the starburst effect and one shot with the lens wide open for more of a bokeh effect. You be the judge. Here are all three.
