I know, it's a cliché, but it was the only thing it came to mind. Actually, second thing, but I didn't have a female model with two big...ahem, balls to tease the dog.

Self portrait, pretty simple, ball hanging with fishing line and then self timer.

During challenge: A few more considerations on the photo itself.
I knew that I'd want a good background for this one. Admittedly, it’s a bit shoehorned into it, since it wasn’t necessary.

I set my camera tripod as low as possible while allowing for the water and sunset to be visible. I then tied a tennis ball to another tripod with very thin fishing line (that I cloned out later on, although it’s so thin that it probably wouldn’t be noticed).

I set the self timer on the camera and tried a few different poses, until I found the one I liked.
From there one, basic editing, just bring back some highlights, I also like to darken the blues of the image to give the sky a much more contrasted look.

(Post-challenge)
Thanks everyone for the fantastic score!
