Despite a horrid cold, I struggled on in the very early morning around Henley town and came across this unadorned, unmarked wooden cross in front of the town hall. The morning was cold and sun had yet to rise. It could of been a bit of a mundane shot, but once framed between the Church and the lampost, I decided to defocus the cross. Yes, camera clubs and the RPS wouldn’t approve unless you have an entire portfolio of out of focus images, but I think in this case it works..to me at least. I accentuated it further in Lightroom by taking the Clarity down quite a bit, which blurred the background even further and the little points of light from street signs, and traffic lights near the church become lovely orbs of light.
