Twirl. by DafoeofLenin Twirl. by DafoeofLenin
I'm doing a lot of experimental things with the flash on my camera and reflective paper. This is one of them:D

First I put some reflective bluish paper in the background (well held it up while trying to steady my camera in the other hand) and set my white balance pretty low, to about 3800 K. Added some water and here we are... :aww: I normally never ever use the flash on my camera, but this is one rare case that I did.

The only post processing was minor levels adjustments, sharpening and contrast and saturation boosts. Oh yes and the curly thing is part of a vine in my backyard. :w00t:

FANTASTIC! It looks like it can't be real, something handcrafted, you know? Like some alien piece of jewelry. Great macro. ~~~<3

By the way big congrats to the Yanks (damn that hurts to say) in the medley swimming final (just watched - Phelps is just unbelievable). We almost got you :nod: :giggle:

I hope your commentators aren't as painful as ours - :omg: we didn't win the gold - that must mean failure (NOT). They all deserve a medal just for getting chosen.

Haha, yeah that man is insane!! Apparently he eats 10,000 calories a day because he burns it all so quickly. :omg: Hehe, our commentators said a lot of weird stuff actually lol. Mostly during the gymnastic stuff, they just said blunt comments like, "That was horrible." or just talking about how the Chinese team didn't look their ages. Which they didn't... 16 yeah right! :lmao:

Yep if I ate 10,000 calories a day (which I could only do if it was chocolate otherwise I would be waaaaaaaay too full :lol:) I'd be the size of a small country (instead of now that I am a small island :rofl:)

And like duhhhhhhhhhhh sure they were under 16 - from what I saw all the other countries' girls actually had slight hips and boobs, unlike the Chinese. I have got to wonder how many hours a day/month their athletes actually trained for. You have got to feel for them, they wouldn't have a life.
