Bokeh grabs 'em
I took an image of the Christmas tree, last year, with a high degree of bokeh ... and posted it on my Photobucket account back in December or January, I forget which. Anyway, in June, it suddenly and rather unexpectedly had 64,000 hits! Cripes, that's more than any other image I have there. Weird ...
I mean, I like it an all. It reminds me of what things kind of look like after the New Year's Eve party and all, but I never dreamed it would be such a "hit." Literally! :eek:
Even when they are out of focus, somebody looks at 'em! I wonder if you are drunk, it actually sharpens up?
I got 26,000-plus on this one! I recall Frank saying he though it was nifty ... but, certainly not to that degree. LOL
Anyone noticed a sudden increase in attention? or just, inattention? :rolleyes:
I know what happened.....It became a SmartPhone wallpaper.
I'm willing to bet it is linked as a wallpaper to download for your cell.
Really? Well, so much for artistic license, eh?
Strange time of year for Xmas Wallpaper.
I may try a similar shot with the TAMRON SP AF 14mm f/2.8, next Christmas, only doing a close-up of the exterior light show of the house
and bokeh Santa making a run for it. With digital, you really have to plan ahead for these shots ... the camera and lenses get cold very quickly.
