Pictured above is the Fig Tree Bridge from Hunters Hill, spanning the Lane Cove River. You might have to use your imagination a little (here’s an in-focus pic from the same spot).
The night was perfectly still, and the river was glass-like. This has created wonderful symmetry in the photo.
With this out-of-focus technique you are relying on the lens to render any available light, rather than the camera to interpret and optimise. The density and shape of each object is a result of the quality of the lens.
And somewhat surprisingly, my experiment worked rather well. The perfect stillness of the Lane Cover River provides great symmetry to the image.
