Vienna, Austria

My unofficial entry to the Thursday challenge "shallow dof". Shallow dof clearly is a domain of macro shots, and but I tried to select one that was not taken with a macro lens. As to what it is, this becomes clearer when viewing this image. As to Veysel's question, no, it is not BW, it was taken on a dull day in early spring, I also did no post-processing whatsoever.

other sizes: small medium large original

I am still not sure about this is B&W or not. But i think good job for Thursday Challenge. :-)

The dof of course is nice, but I also like the choice of image and the composition as well. V
