This is wonderful Min. Love how you placed tomten and pig such that they were contrasted against the darkness. Love the fabric/texture of the basket in comparison to the other objects. Love how the candy cane and the flowers point towards our two friends. Love how it is sharp and clear up front and then things get hazy in the distance. And seasonal to boot! This is just awesome.
The fireplace shot is actually two images, one shot for the basket and one for the fireplace, then blended in PS and put on top of a couple of textures and a pattern. Then I hauled in the other artwork, masked and blended, added shadows, and popped the tomten into place and added some shadowing for him, then fooled with the colors to get them all more consistent. I’m learning something with every piece I concoct. Still far behind though.

Weak 51 - Rust - from that piece of old farm equipment in my yard that I can't seem to give up. Kinda snapshotty but it was rainy and cold and I didn't have the fortitude to do anything very creative. May try again when I'm back there tomorrow.

Next week I have "photographer's choice" so will shoot whatever crosses my mind. I can't believe I'm about to finish a 52 project! The first time I've done that! I started one last year but fell off the wagon in June and never got back to it. I plan on doing it again. It helps me stay focused, and forces me to try new things.

Love the rustic wheel !!! I'm sure you can pull more age from it with your editing skills.

I agree, needs more grunge. I think I need to shoot from a different angle. Or maybe from the ground...

Thanks Piet. It was utter wonderful madness with three dogs and three little boys plus a dozen grownups. And the only sunny day we've had in 3 weeks made it more fun, even though it was a little cold.

Concluding the 2018 52 and will be starting another sometime later this week.

Don't know that it needs fixing minniev....Just something about it, maybe it seems like a daytime picture turned into night
