Holiday Card Reject

Neil told me this was too esoteric (I'm editorializing here, his exact comment was something along the lines of "why's it out of focus?") so it has been abandoned for a less artsy image. I love the new one, but I love this one too and I just couldn't let it languish in my discard pile without sharing it.

  1. Like you, I always give my husband Christmas photo "veto power." And he never picks the artsy shot either. =>

  4. You so impress me with your Photo Shopping -- like writing Happy Holidays on the ornament. I'd have no idea. Of course, I don't have Photoshop, but still.

    My husband's comments would be exactly the same about the focus.

    You know that your ads are about photo cards right now, don't ya? Tee hee.

  5. I think this one is way cool.

    But...

    You can't clearly see Bean, and that just seems wrong somehow. That cuteness should be front and center! ;)

  8. I love it! We should get our husbands together. They can be friends and do very straightforward things together.

  9. This IS very cool looking! Maybe you could do a mini collage and use it in there! :o) I think this shot is WAY interesting.

  10. See, this is the kinda fun artsy shit I can't pull off with photography. But, I could write "Happy Holidays" on the stinkin' ball. At least I can do that much. Anyway, me likey.

  11. I came THIS close to using a blurry shot too! With some corny caption about how it all goes by in a blur and to enjoy every moment. But I kept hearing my grandpa saying "Why would you use a shot that makes everyone think they don't have their reading glasses on?"
    So for the record, I love love love that picture up there.

  13. See, this is what blogs/facebook are for -- getting to share ALL the joy. Great shot.

  14. Your husband sounds like my husband. If it isn't perfectly centered and absolutely clear, it's is NOT a good picture. Grrr.

    Love your idea. :)
