09/26/09 - Firestorm Planet
OK, so I was trying to take some traditional (for me) glass shots last night, and they just weren't turning out like I was hoping. I needed sunlight (and it was 9PM), and the glass pattern just wasn't smearing the glass the way I wanted it to. So, I started playing around with moving the plate. Up and down, in a circle, and then left to right and right to left. This 'planet' is a result of the latter. The entire planet is SOOC. On the right, I changed the color of that area from my ceiling to black. I used the light over the kitchen table. Ta da! I don't know if you'll like it or not, but with the clouds and drizzle yesterday and work I didn't get to take not even 1 outside shot:-( The kids and I will be going out to places with lots of color and interest today, so hopefully I'll be inspired!
I was truly surprised by the feedback on yesterday's water bottle picture. Honest, at first look, I thought it was a failure. Then I played with it a bit and thought that maybe it might be good enough to post. Again, it was all I had unless I wanted to post something older. Just goes to show you that sometimes we aren't are own best critics I guess. Anyway, thank you to those that visited my POTD and commented. That picture is now way up on my most popular list. You guys continue to be a huge inspiration to me to strive to do even better. There is a lot of great talent in our group, and everyday I enjoy looking at your pictures very much.
