365 Day Project: Day 3: June 10th: 'The Magic of 03:00'

One of the things I enjoy the very most in life is taking what at first glance appears to be an utterly mundane scene or object and discovering its hidden beauties. This image is one of those moments - a 03:00 a.m. trip to the bathroom, of all things, had me reaching for the camera in the dark...

...I had a bit of trouble getting back to sleep, as the image of where this shot was heading was already in my mind... first thing this morning I imported the shots from my camera and fired up Photoshop. After a quick search online for 'bokeh with Photoshop', I was off on another learning curve, transforming an already interesting shot into something a bit more 'ethereal'...I am happy enough with the result - not bad for a first attempt at rendering this particular hand-made lighting effect, I reckon :o)

Thanks go out to for a great tutorial - I didn't follow it to the letter, and mine don't look anything like yours (!), but it was a big help anyway :-)
