It's a Beautiful Day - U2

Is it my favourite song? It's one of them. I love U2 and the fact that today is a beautiful day made me think of this one.
Anyway, it's more suitable for a soft focus high key treatment than the first line of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, which is probably my most favourite song.

The softness comes from shooting through a plastic flashlight lens.

Marvelous delicate texture makes this sweet to see. The flashlight lens thing is great for this. No 1' s 2's or 3's on this one either. That's as it should be.
I also like U2.

Beautiful Day
Lovely softness of focus and hues that works perfectly for the subject, as does the title. Voted earlier.

Clean, calm image. Nothing overly striking, but then nothing really done poorly. It just is.
