Team Up Thursday: Close Up

JoLyn is in Nicaragua this week and has limited computer access so she asked me to take her breathtaking photo of water splashing and do something with it.

Do you know how daunting that was????

Well, there was much tooing and froing across the room last night as Himself weighed in on the project with his designer's opinion. This combination was not his choice; in fact he disagreed with it so strongly he sent me some of his own super-duper close up shots taken with his professional fabuloso macro camera thingy, to use instead. I felt that would be taking 'assistance' too far and preferred to use one of my own. He did like one I put together using a photo of rock textures from Kangaroo Island (again) but I didn't think the close up was close enough and my camera is just not good enough to get in reeeeal close like JoLyn has done.

So here you have a more 'real' offering. My imperfect shot paired with JoLyn's sensational one (Himself was most impressed) as if she is about to bathe the Baby Angel's tired feet!

And that's Team Up Thursday for this week from me! I'm not even sure whether JoLyn will choose this combo as I gave her the option of the (designerly) better combo with rock. She can only get internet access early morning and late evening and I don't know if I missed the window when I belatedly got this together last night. Oh well! Makes for an interesting 'life on the edge' :-D You may get to see Himself's preference over at A Year of Happy.

For more dynamic duos, check over at Melody or Megan's for Team Up Thursday.

I love the yellow sandals and red toes--they are definitely my favorite! In fact, this is one of my favorites yet!

You went on and on but didn't have to convince us that what you chose was the right one! I love pairing. And now I need a pedicure.

Well spotted Melody! I do have a tendency to go on and on and on! hahahah. I guess my designer husband intimidates me...mind you JoLyn's amazing photography is pretty humbling to work with :-D

Jewell! Thanks for calling in! Glad I still keep someone amused :-D

I was thinking the same thing as Meloday - it was a great pairing! Well done, and no need to be intimidated. I like your composition and the pop of close-up color!

Cara said...

I love this combo, I really like the contrast of the two images!

Amy Jo said...

I like these two images together! The color and reality of your image contrasts nicely with the abstract nature of JoLyn's. You did a great job!

This photo pairing is AMAZING! I do like how the detail of the shoes almost echos the water... You have a fun blog here. Thanks so much for visiting me yesterday for The Blog Cafe--very much enjoyed reading your comment. Happy Day :o)

Tracy! I hadn't even realised that but of course it is why I liked the image so much myself! Foolish designer husband. What would he know? :-D

Maggie said...

Love it! That color is the perfect pop!
