When I first saw this weeks theme, I thought of shots of my brothers shiny heads. Then thought naw...give them boys a break. LOL And of course there's the cars and moon but, I figured there would be lots of those. So, I dipped into me archives...and got caught up in memories. I came across shinny red crawfish boiling in the pot. The gazing ball in Morticia's yard....and lots of others. LOL
I decided on this one. I took this in Feb at Mitzi and Clydes wedding. I liked the way the light was hitting the glass rocks. They shinned. So...here it is...

MM Monday...I've always enjoyed this and I'm gonna miss it when it's gone. I've learned a lot with this group. Not just from the Gator, who I really miss but, from many of you. The pictures I used this week are one that I took of my daughter and a sunset from one the rare days that Morticia and I had to just go out and play. After I blended the two pictures, I changed it to black and white and used a midnight blue filter. Not sure which one I like best. In the one in color, I used the color dodge when I blended and went down a little on the opacity. Looks like theres a sunspot on her face, guess I'll have to go back and fix that. I think I may print and frame one of these. Now, If I can just find the right combination of contrast on tones for the one I'm working on of Brandy.
I look forward to viewing the entries this week but, may have to wait until tomorrow. Just back from the hospital. Seems I'm a little dehydrated.
Y'all take care

The Picture Perfect theme this week is "Contrast". When I looked up contrast in photography, this is what I found:
"Contrast within photography can be found in a picture with light and dark colors, black and white high contrast photos, or a complimentary color scheme image."
This is a picture of my daughter, Tamara. Affectionately known as Tee. It's one of my favorites. On this day, contrast was in my favor. The color of her shirt, her skin tones, the background at the lake and her eyes. To me, everything came together to bring out the sparkle in her eyes.
