The sun poked thru the sky for about 2 seconds today. I raced out to enjoy it and get some outside stuff done before the clouds showed up again. Scott's picture had me thinking about practicing my still-life shots again. The connection is in the collections.
Shutter 1/400 sec.

Sorry Cubbie Fans, I have been down south for too long. I raided my sons baseball collection for baseball gear so I could practice, although the shirt is mine.
I don't do still-life shots very often, it just isn't my thing really. Like in this shot, all my settings are fine, but I don't have any real "feeling" in the shot. Anyway I will probably continue to practice still-lifes because the challenges of them call to me. But only when I have to!
I played around Photoshop because I enjoy messing around with filters. The filter I used in this shot was the contrast color range filter which helped to make the colors "pop" a bit, giving a little excitement to the shot.
