LESS IS MORE
This was tough - for me at Christmas, there's no such thing as "less is more"! So I played with crumpling the sparkly fabric I put under my santa chollection...

Tree lights reflected in the window...
I've done some experimenting with this prompt and also because Kat over at KatEyeView (if you haven't discovered her blog yet, it's definitely worth your time!) has this prompt for the next couple weeks. While none are turning out as well as I the pic in my head, I feel like I'm making progress with intentional captures.
I took many shots for this prompt and these two are my favorite - probably because they're of special ornaments - the pink bird I've had as "my" special ornament for probably 50 years. It had lost most of it's feathers so last year I did a little tail feather repair. The other is one of the few left from my mom.
CUP OF CHEER
I feel like this was a successful shot and I even liked the selective color version with the touch of texture (by Kim Klassen).
I used photos from violscaper and walwyn (Tewkesbury Abbey) on flickr as the starting point for this photo art then added textures by Shadowhouse and a little brush work.
Be sure to visit Scavenger Hunt Sunday for an entertaining photographic journey of these prompts.
