Scavenger Hunt Sunday (November 13, 2011)

For Scavenger Hunt Sunday this week, people took photos related to the following five prompts. I used photos from my archives for this hunt.

1. Before and After

I can’t believe how long my boys hair got in 2007. For these before and after photos, I Photoshopped them so that each boy would be in a picture with himself, before and after his haircut. Do you like their hair better long or short?

2. Opposing Lines

3. Custom Bokeh

I didn’t do this in-camera as the prompt suggested, but I played around with Photoshop to try to create a bokeh effect.

4. Which Pair of Shoes Should I Wear?

Even though these boots were waterproof, my feet were still soaked once the trail became a stream, and I didn’t have rain gear to cover the tops of the boots.

5. Little Features
