'Rhapsody in Purple'
This piece is a demonstration of macro photography that can easily transform reality into an abstract form. You may think it's a flower but can never be certain. All we actually see is an interesting composition carried out in predominantly purple colour, complemented with a deep blue area in the bottom left, a touch of green in two other areas and white. However, the red is the colour with the most impact here. Even though it covers only one small part, the overall punch is quite substantial. I feel exquisite beauty and gentleness which are not planned, they rather come on casually, without any strict rules.
Notice the shallow depth of field. In macro photography focus can be a problem if the low depth of field is applied to images that need to remain fully sharp. In this one, shallow depth of field is used as a tool for conveying a deeper meaning. Soft focus is everywhere but on the designated spot where I've set the focus. Foreground and background are left unsharp, what adds to the soft, gentle notion which I wanted to accentuate. Because of that, the focused part feel like a razor blade on a velvet cover.
The purple colour is the weird one for me. It can be perceived many ways but usually, I see it as beautiful and vague. I'd never wear it, for example. It is very rare in nature, what makes it exceptional. Purple is also the coldest one of all visible colours in the spectrum. Its beauty, if applied correctly, cannot be denied. :)
