I recently decided to ditch my typical style of photography and opt to experiment with having the objects out of focus. I'm slightly indifferent with the results (as I'm learning this effect, will link below a few test shots) however I wanted to gather a quick opinion of other photographers.
Given these are deliberately shot out of focus, the idea behind these is to still be able to read the picture from the lights alone (I.e. the bridge or the bus) I'm wondering if that's been achieved. If not any ideas why you say so?
Do the below photos below have/need a specific object to draw your attention? (the bridge for example, had I taken in-focus would be the main subject however by doing this I've made the lights the main and the bridge is more something that is interpreted by the viewer)
Would it help if there was more information for the viewer to better understand the image (example being the bus in the second image, you can make out it's a bus through the lights however has that been properly achieved?)
Bear in mind the example (second image) isn't mine nor bares much with my shot as mine was at night and a lot more minimalistic I feel. Nevertheless here's the best example I could find of said out-of-focus style. Also I've actually got an album of 8 photos, unfortunately I'm not allowed to post more than 2 photos so the top is my own, where as the second is an example off the internet (when I find out how to add the full album I'll do so ASAP)
