057/365 Howdy Partner

Wow, I am drained and have no energy whatsoever. I coached T-Ball last night and this morning then this afternoon we had our daughters birthday party with about 15 kids in attendance. Needless to say, all you are getting out of me is a simple toy shot tonight. I almost considered just using ambient light but thought I could put in a little more effort. So low and behold, Woody and Bulls Eye... Howdy Partner!

    Nicelly done.... I immediately went to the setup to see the objects that made that bokeh. Nicely played.
    BTW nice post-processing, a little vintage look.

    What an awesome shot of an ordinary everyday thing. Unfortunately my son drew a moustache and goatee on his Woody toy - I'd feel shame photographing him. Thanks for sharing your setup.

    almost wish that there was the bokeh was consistent in the backround but i really like how consistent the color is in your photos. i love blue!
