Colourful Dots

Colourful dots. Aren't they fun? Lets see. What do we really have here. A couple of traffic lights, some car headlings, a few lights in store windows, etc.

I shot it intentionally out of focus at a full open aperture (f/2) in order to get perfectly round dots. I probably sohuld have tried to shoot at 1/60 rather than 1/30 in order to get the dots sharper but I didn't want to boost the ISO any higher so it was a trade off. I'm not sure what would have been better. I guess I should have just tried and taken a look after!

It's abstract but hopefully you will all enjoy it :)

Cool shot. I prefer that some of them are sharper than others. Wonderful colors. Olympus Rocks!!!!!
Well done. I tried something similar but didn't work as well as this. I'll have another go one of these days.
