.:Wheel of Colors by ginkgografix .:Wheel of Colors by ginkgografix
My entry for the "Beauty in Everday Objects" Contest by ^hellfirediva

No editing in PS, just added the border there. I think it looks nicer with it.

And as for explaining the technique... um... i have a window, i have lots of plants in front of it and i have those fixing pins. The first try to make a nice photo didn't work, so i waited for the later afternoon, because ^kuschelirmel once told me that light is better. She was right :giggle:

Tried a lot of different angles, with plants behind, with sky behind etc, but this one worked best for me.

Hope you like it as well :aww:

Also ich hab mir die Beiträge angesehen und ich finde schon, dass du da ganz ganz weit vorne liegst! Vor allem entspricht das Foto perfekt dem Wettbewerb-Thema, im Gegensatz zu einigen anderen. Du hast da einen eher sehr unscheinbaren Gegenstand wirklich in ein sehr schönes Licht gerückt.

i think it'd look pretty good against a black or dark gray too! i've always loved the spectrum against dark neutrals :love:

I should try something like that next time. Just had no grey/black stuff to use as background there :B

I don't remember where I saw it, but this girl had used aluminum foil as a background for her portrait...and in the end, it had just this beautiful shimmery bokeh like you wouldn't believe. Never would have guessed it was aluminum foil, I'd have thought golden/purple/gray christmas lights or something.. I'll have to dig it up haha.

Was going through all my stuff. Wanted to do something glittery first, but that's something that was already used way too often :B
