This was my most involved shoot ever. had to buy all the bedding and the tulle for around the top of the canopy and the picture and slippers on saturday then just this morning(sunday) I had to wake up early. kick my kid outta bed. take apart the bed. set it up on the lawn, put all the stuff on it. then put the slippers down next to it. hang fishing wire from one bed post to the house and put the print on it. I attached fishing wire from the tulle to the trees off to the left of the shot to make it look like its windy and add a little interest. tried to use a strobe powered by my car but it wasnt powerful enough so that didnt happen. and then got my daughter into the bed. she wasnt cooperating too well but I got some shots. then took it all apart. put the bed back upstairs where it belongs. then plopped down as tired as can possibly be to see if I had anything useable. I ended up with a few different choices none of which i'm completely pleased with but i still hope this does well as my neighbors probably think I'm crazy now and I'm sure I singehandedly just brought the property values in this neighborhood WAY down. lol

You know I am not sure why I haven't commented on this yet when at least 20 of the views are mine. :-)

It is AWESOME! I really love it. The set up is magnificent and who cares what the neighbors think. The thought and effort that went into this is crazy cool and it should have won a ribbon along with Judy's.

Rock On Chica!

Very, very well done! Cool shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow. I thought maybe that this was some elaborate double-exposure thing, but no, it was an elaborate move the whole bed into the back yard thing.

Nice shot. I agree with posthumous. Needed more lobster for those extra couple of points.

The most creative entry in the challenge. Very original and nicely executed. How did you get all that stuff outside?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 12:49:17 AM
Very creative. Wish it would have placed higher, as it deserved IMHO.

Wow. You just keep coming with these fantastically creative ideas! Very nice idea, and terrific shot! The picture hanging in space is just wonderful - adds to the magical feeling. :)

Great image Crystal....I gave this a 9 and thought you would be in the top 5 or 10...oh well, some people just don't get art!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 12:12:42 AM
Oh my gosh, Crystal, I can't believe you went to all that work! You need to seek professional help... :-) Seriously, though, I thought this was AWESOME.

fantastic idea, well executed
  Photographer found comment helpful.

can't resist to vote on this one. must be a pretty hard set-up (a four-poster bed in the yard). i'll give an extra point for the effort.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Fun and quirky. Excellent model...getting lots of practice?! Cool idea, good luck.

You moved the bed outside? How did you get the picture there? Because the image is so small, the child reminds me of the Exorcist! (no disrespect intended - if there's a halloween / scary challenge, consider this).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2006 07:11:30 PM
You keep fit moving furniture around like that! Nicely done. 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2006 09:54:05 AM
needs more lobster. ok, it's good fun and I like it and I'll give it a 7ish, but it could still use a little more lobster.

She does the part so well...just love it when people make an effort to bring out.......the bed? I meant to say display their creative side...well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2006 10:49:42 PM
love the hanging picture. I think I might like a slightly tighter crop to get rid of some of the bottom.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2006 08:08:27 AM
floating photo a very nice touch!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2006 11:00:27 PM
Wow..almost perfect (the picture is blowing in the breeze too)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2006 10:24:34 AM
The backround could be better.. doesn't really represent nature, BUT, I understand how difficult it must have been to even move the bed there! Awesome originality... 7

Oh this is fabulous!!! Man, you actually set up a bed outside. WOW

I am so positive I allready commented on this one! Weird.

Ok, what was I saying. I LOVE this one. Added it to faves also. Gave it a 10. But, there's one thing (and not gonna vote you down for it): I'd like to see less grass at the bottom and right, and more bed!!

Good luck in the challenge :)

nice set up but it doesnt look like there is any morning lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/16/2006 11:44:59 AM
Good grief -- someone went through a lot of trouble to pull this off! A 10 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/16/2006 10:33:27 AM
Gotta give you props for actually doing this. I had a similar idea, but that is all it was, an idea. Can't believe you actually did this. Nice execution too. The picture in the trees is a nice touch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/16/2006 10:15:20 AM
?? that looks either like very hard work, or some clever trickery...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/16/2006 09:46:46 AM
The photo is not bad by any means...I'm not seeing much 'Nature' - it seems a little over-produced to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/16/2006 08:59:59 AM
Great idea...love the contrast of white and dark colors. Just composition I think would be better more space on left side cuz its in the way of winds motion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

6: Crazy! The localtion for this is not quite right as there is too much detail there that takes my eye away from the crazyness of the bed and picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/16/2006 01:51:21 AM
great idea, bad focus. How did you set up the picture frame? this is one funny setup. Looks like Linda Blair from the exorcist..creeepy
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/16/2006 01:20:57 AM
Looks like she's screaming. Almost reminds me of "The Exorcist"
