Great shot Petra. Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-02 at 18:33 4 years ago Roy, thank you, I’m pleased you like the shot. It may not seem so but it was a tough one. Linda at To Behold The Beauty 2014-12-02 at 02:14 4 years ago Absolutely perfect! A Christmas card photo if there ever was one! Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-02 at 18:35 4 years ago Linda, thank you for your appreciative words. I’m pleased you like the photo. visualnorway 2014-12-05 at 11:52 4 years ago I like that selective focusing and the non-straight line of the candles. Put it in an envelope and mail it to all you friends as a Christmas card! Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-05 at 20:13 4 years ago Rune, thank you. I felt very particular about the focusing in the composition so I’m really pleased you like it. Carola Bartz 2014-12-21 at 04:07 4 years ago This is so beautiful, Petra. I can feel the expectation of Advent. Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-22 at 22:11 4 years ago Carola, thank you. Yesterday we lit the fourth candle, Christmas is suddenly so close… J_on_tour 2014-12-27 at 01:26 4 years ago I thought the picture was a bit busy at first then I realised that it was advent. It's probably more artistic to push yourself from this angle as opposed to straight on for all four to be in a row. The flame, red and green (accident … I realise) go well together. Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-27 at 21:05 4 years ago J, thank you for the feedback. I wanted to shoot an Advent wreath in this week, with the first candle lit, nevertheless what I eventually bought was not a wreath but a piece of wood decorated for Advent. I liked it very much but found taking the photo quite challenging. I tried several angles and details and this one won. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your e-mail address will not be published.
