Challenge: Least/Most Favorite Household Items (Basic Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Olympus PEN E-P2
Lens: Panasonic Lumix 20mm f1.7 ASPH
Date: Jan 31, 2011
Date Uploaded: Jan 31, 2011

One of my first advices to a new photographer is:
"Get out of your house and stay away from these household items".
I found very little inspiration for this challenge until I found myself in the kitchen section of an IKEA store this morning, a gold mine for pictures of mundane accumulation.

Very interesting processing. Did you use in inverted layer to achieve the odd light?

Congrats on the ribbon! I had been in an Ikea a few days earlier, that's how I knew where you took this pic.

As I have done in the past Jean-Jacques, I once again marvel at your 'eye'.

Not my most typical shot. Just for the fun; as this picture looked totally uninteresting originally, inverted it gave to these brushes a sense of cosmic floatation. I guess the cheerful silliness of it all is what made it popular in this rather dull challenge. Thanks to all.

I'm sure glad on the other hand that this will not end up on my profile page!

Clever. Not my favorite brush but, who really cares? It's still missing something for me. Perhaps it needs more cropping? Would make a good wall paper. 7
