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.
