Interpretation of this week’s photo challenge’s theme: Afloat.
I took this picture when I was in Nara Park which is a popular place with lots of deers there people can play with. It was actually quite late in the afternoon and the sun is setting with the magical moment starting. We were walking along a trail surrounded by tall trees and then I saw the evening sun emitting rays through the dense leaves. It was a typical tricky lighting condition and so I decided to do some practice by taking pictures with different combinations of aperture values and shutter speeds.
At the end I got a very interesting picture. While the sun was indeed floating in the sky, it looked like a mini floating fireball being conjured above the wooden signage. I also added some blur around the photo and also soften the focus to add a bit of fantasy style.
