D-119 "Try something new" challenge

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”
Albert Einstein




I've been out of town since last Thursday, even though I did take pictures every day I was not able to upload and share because I did not have my computer. I think I need a lap top.
Instead of playing catch up I will just pick up where I left off.
Day 119.
Tasra Mar posted a challenge last Thursday and that was to "try something new" I read on a forum, "Cherie" stated that crystals would make a great bokehed background - so I tried it. I like the results.
Diamonds and crystals

I got to spend some nice time with my Nephew Jose - I missed you so much! It was nice spending time with you. I'm very proud of what you've accomplished.

I also got to spend some time with my brother. Hey bro nice seeing you again.

And Alinda - thank you so much for your hospitality. You are a kind hostess. That 7 pound lobster really "rocked" LOL
You are doing an awesome job with your photography - keep it up.

Lovely bokeh.
Did you have the ring sit on a granite stone? I like the reflection.

Nice comp, the bokeh is awesome.

Sounds like you had a great trip.

Tasra Dawson said...

LOVE! Background, bokeh, reflection... this is beautiful.

Sandra said...

This is not granite stone. This is just an acrylic that was part of a picture frame. I ran the black backdrop underneath it.

Gary Schmeidler said...

Great capture Sandra! Lots of elements to like in this shot from the bokeh, the composition and the reflection. And very nice ring!

Hey Sandra - Glad you loved the lobster. Thanks for everything.... THE WEDDING TURNED OUT GREAT WITH ALL OF YOUR HELP. I am so lucky to have a friend like you. "One who shares her talents and time". As my mother said... "you're the type of friend every parent wants their child to have". I am also so glad you got to spend time with your family - it is so important! Can't wait to see you again.

I really like the composition and contrast of the platinum ring and the colorful bokeh in the background.
