I just couldn't resist. This idea came to me as soon as I read the challenge title, but we didn't have a mop. That was the only purchase I made, as I already owned the broom and the mike. I borrowed my sweetie's Maui Jims (my sunglasses are not nearly as cool), but had a devil of a time getting them to sit properly on the mop. And then to make a broom and a mop look bad-ass.

This was also the first time I've used my strobes (took long enough!!!), and I also knew exactly how I wanted them to look. I'm rather pleasantly surprised it looks as much as a performance as it does since my office is SO not like a stage.

I did one single adjustment in Topaz, a bit of curves and levels, then saved for web.

The PH challenge just ended. From the sublime to the absurd...

*sigh*

I didn't vote on this challenge, but I think this would have gotten a very high vote from me. You know I love the quirky stuff. How about a fave instead?

THe lights are great, a bit of haze or smoke would have been good too imo.

I love the title and the background lights were a great addition, but the microphone gets completely lost in the deep shadow. Maybe a little side lighting off to the right may have helped. I'd play with this one a little more because I think it'd make a great picture.
