I did the opposite in mine. It blends into the background. i’m no photographer. I knew it was a bad shot, but I just liked the idea of it. (The thought that counts? 🤣) Then I took one where the background is different, but the lighting is poor. I’d love your opinion on which is better/worse.
Thanks for the great thread!
Oh no! It's all in the eye of the beholder. For the first few seconds, I couldn't tell if the "netting"(?) was behind or in front of... and that was okay! Mercifully, you included the photograph in reduced size, giving me the option (I took it!) to view it full size, in its glory. TYVM! I wish others did so.

hi all,

This is so much fun!

@CeeTee, I also vote for the first one, it's really cool!

@thescentguru, there are no rules, right?

I took this photo for an SOTD thread the other day.


My first photo looked like this:


Yes, it's an egg box on my kitchen table, and I sprinkled it with my daughter's treasures, but that's not what I saw. To show what I saw, I had to play with which light I switched on/off in the kitchen (I ended up with the light of the cooker hood) and blurred the background a bit :D

So, I had the idea that Angel’s Share might be fun with shoes that look like the antithesis of an angel, after a night out drinking. One shoe would have blood on the bottom, like she’s done something unholy.
I showed my better half who inquired, “You know this is about the shoes, right?” I couldn’t get the darn lighting right with the shiny label, so…Yeah. It’s mostly shoes.

$5, $10, and $20

Do you collect gold pieces?
I would but the only coinage I have are hand me down from my mother, from her mom. I had a liberty dollar but it got 'lost' somewhere. The 2.50$ piece is pristine, the relief very sharp.

I'm almost 62 for perspective. My grandfather gave his two eldest grandsons double eagles....both lost.
