Me: Will you help me with a picture tonight? It'll be a little odd.
Daughter: Well, what would I have to do?
Me: Get in a swimsuit.
Daughter: Yeah.
Me: Maybe wet your hair.
Daughter: OK. I guess.
Me: Great. You're the best. You change and I'll go get the trash can. Um... Did I mention you'll have to get in the trash can?
Thank you, daughter.

I am very excited at how well this is doing. My expert editing skills are pretty weak, but this was relatively easy. Take a picture of the opened egg. Take a picture of my poor daughter in the trash can with the egg and trash can opening at the same perspective and lighting at the same angle. Then it was just a simple cut and paste of my daughter into the egg image and add a little shadow inside the egg.

I like this image, it is very creative and the processing is really great. Maybe a tighter crop and/or a composition outside the center might have been preferable, but still a great image.
