Challenge: Decorate Baby Emilie's Nursery (Expert Editing)
Camera: Fujifilm X-E2
Location: Oklahoma City, OK - in/around
Date: Oct 1, 2014
Aperture: various
ISO: various
Shutter: various
Date Uploaded: Oct 5, 2014

This was basically a hodgepodge of various things I shot this week, and as the concept evolved I just started playing around with photoshop and adding to it throughout the week.
No high expectations because it's as cheesy as they come, but if someone gets a chuckle out if it I'll be happy.
The clouds were about a dozen exposures stacked together to make them blurry, then the colors were tweaked and the sky chopped out and put into the picture of the house.
The cookie monster is a stuffed toy my son has. The 'cookies' he is holding is the moon, shot with my 135mm lens, cropped and flipped for each 'cookie.
The goat and the bird (actually a statue) were at a local farm/amusement park, as was the photo of my son holding the pumpkin.
The woody was chopped out of an outtake for the nursery rhyme challenge.
The cookies and the paper bag were shot today, the last day of the challenge. I had drawn a bag in photoshop that looked closer to the icon of people who hide their identity during voting, but I decided that wouldn't be legal from re-reading the rules so I found a real bag and shot it and distorted it in PS. I painted on the eyes with the paint brush tool because I couldn't find a sharpie.
The neon glow around some of the characters is from the blending mode effects menu in PS.

The red evil eye in the goat! Wow - a bit on the surreal side. The cookies look yummy, though - even tho they sort-of look like they're floating. Extra credit for creativity here, though.

Funny, but the cookie monster is the last thing that caught my eye. Not sure I'd want my daughter waking up the unibomber - DNMC bomb or otherwise.

Haha, talk about a creative entry! What an unbridled imagination. I love it! Sure, Emilie is going to ask some questions, but I am going to have to much gun inventing stories involving the ghost goat, the bag head voter, or the giant cookies! Thank you so much!

This theme allowed for some playfulness, however you have a lot going on here and it doesn't make sense to me. Also, the baghead might be a little scary for a baby. (Was the trashcan by the door included on purpose?)

this made me laugh Way too much.
this will either inspire creativity or induce catatonic shock. the red eyes on the goat are the make-it-or-break-it point here, really.
