awesome pictures. how do you achieve this effect?
+Siva Nadarajah .by standing about 2 ft from the tree on the right and focusing on that. The trees with the bigger circles are more distant. The key is to use a wide aperture. I was probably using f1.8 here. I then boost the contrast in post processing if required. The effect also works with a much lighter image though so the contrast boost isn't essential.
