LOTS of Henrys, as seen through the bottom of a shallow ridged glass ice cream dish.

Photography Assignment

Daily Dog Challenge 385. "Illusion"

Our Daily Challenge - Nov 19, 2012 - "Transparent"


To be honest, I wasn't that impressed with any of them, although I though the second picture (the "diamond" can be seen in yesterday's Adventure post) was the most interesting of the lot.

Unfortunately, no amount of slider pushing (and I pushed many and often) was going to give it enough contrast to be the Pick-of-the-Day.

That dubious honor went to the top shot, which, somewhat surprisingly, had almost nothing done to it except a nudge to the cool-side to take the edge of the Kitchen Light Yellows, plus a square crop to eliminate everything but the Henrys.


I didn't have enough light to pull these bottom two off. I really needed to use a small aperture (big number) in order to have the frame and dog appear to be as one.

Unfortunately, the Speedlight wasn't up to the task, even when I bumped the ISO ridiculously high (not shown here, as the pictures looked, well, ridiculous.)

I think the effects you got were really, really cool! I loved how they turned out. And my own blog appears to FINALLY be fixed! Huzzah!

Neat effects! I've never thought to try photographing my dogs that way..Those photography prompts are neat, wish I had the time to devote to them...

This certainly was different. I Think the top pic is my favorite.
