Taken at a hotel. Still need to work on my indoor shots.
Dug this up from my archives. Unedited shot of the ocean from the Boracay beach, Philippines. The ocean is macro, isn’t it?
Taken from my apartment
I used a little reflection trick in editing of these lights inside a restaurant.
When all else fails, use your child’s toys. Have a great Sunday!

Awesome Scavenger hunt! I loved what you did with the lights…but what was it? I really, REALLY like this series…

The original abstract shot was of a bunch of transparent glass lights. In editing, I just used the Reflection trick, easy!
Cool shots – love the abstract image!

Really cool shots, Alison! I love the angle on the stairs. And I would also love to hear how you processed the abstract shot. Are you willing to divulge your editing secret? 🙂
Amanda recently wrote…Monthly Recap: What I learned in August 2011
Thanks Amanda! It’s not secret really. I just cropped the shot tight, and as I use Photoscape (free to download for Windows PCs), I just use the reflection function in editing.
I love the ocean shot! And will you be telling us your editing trick?? 😉

Thanks Kim! The ocean shot is a reflection of how when your subject is gorgeous, no editing is required. And the abstract photo is just a simple reflection function in Photoscape!
I had to laugh at your ocean comment! It is macro and full of micro-life 🙂 The abstract one is really cool. The lights look like floating bubbles, reminding me for some reason of jelly fish. Your son’s toys are really fun from the perspective you give us; it makes me look at my children’s toys in a whole new light.

I figured, what is bigger than the ocean? 🙂 And I ran out of time to shoot a variety of things I had in mind for the prompt – busy week! The lights ARE like floating bubbles, I think that was the restaurant’s intention. And I was going to post a picture of my son smiling but it’s so hard to capture a smile/ action shot so I looked around the house for inspiration as always 🙂
Hi. I absolutely love your photos and takes on them!! The macro is stunning as well as the abstract- that must be an awesome restaurant!!

Thank you Sabrina! The restaurant had better lights than food 😉
Very creative set! Unique take on macro and I love your abstract shot~really beautiful! Fun smile!

Thank you Cedar!
I believe your signature for hunts should be one toy shot minimum 🙂 Because they are great and i love them. Great processing on the stairs and abstract. I really like them. And ocean, perfect!
Stasha recently wrote…Scavenger hunt
Haha, good idea Stasha! He has so many toys, we might not run out of inspiration for a while. And thank you for your kind comments.
Love the abstract! Toys are great fill-ins!
Have a great Sunday too!

Thank you Leighann!
I’ve been meaning to do this scavenger hunt. I’m always looking for an excuse to take more pictures. I love your ocean shot. So massive and calming.
Oh do, Jen, you take great shots!
I like the lights inside the restaurant pic! 🙂

Thank you Jen!
Cool shots. I actually really like the indoor one. And that one with the lights is cool!
Robin recently wrote…Stronger Than Cancer
Thanks Robin! Indoor shots are hard because of lighting but I’m working on it!
Great finds…I especially like the one of Boracay (a bit biased here) and the smiling toy. A lot of my children’s toys are no longer smiling coz they’re either missing a limb or some pieces…
RachelJoy recently wrote…The Message
Boracay is beautiful 🙂
Wonderful abstract shot….so interesting!
What an awesome set – loving those first two shots!
Thank you Ashley!
I love the smile and the abstract the best…but they’re all great!

I really like your abstract, you did great on the reflection processing (share, please). The last one is also cute, I love toys.
Valeria recently wrote…Scavenger Hunt. September 04
Thanks Valeria. I use PhotoScape, a free for download tool for Windows PCs. In there, I used the reflection function on the picture, easy!
The one with the lights that look like bubbles turned out so cool!!

Thank you, the picture turned out better than I’d hoped.
Love them all! My favorite would be abstract..smile is the runner-up! Awesome job!
I love the smile! What great photos!

Thank you, I hope to improve every week 🙂
Those restaurant lights are really cool! I like that pic!
Rach (DonutsMama) recently wrote…Life’s Lessons: The Super Glue Edition
The lights are very cool. No idea how you did that but it’s a great shot.
Jessica recently wrote…Getting Hacked Sucks
All of the pictures are great, but I love the ones of the lights of the restaurant!

Woooow – impressive photos!!
Lady Jennie recently wrote…Supermarket CD Giveaway
Thank you 🙂
You cracked me up with that last one. Love the lights in the restaurant, so cool!
Elaine recently wrote…I miss my childhood…
Hehe, thanks Elaine!
I ADORE the restaurant lights one. I am a sad photographer. I’m lucky my kids are the cutest in the world (and that I’m objective LOL) or I would leave my posts photo-less.
