    This is a 19 month old little girl that belongs to a good friend of ours who came over for a visit, so naturally I grabbed the camera for some candid shots! I don't know where she found the light bulb, but I had the idea after the fact to light it up in photoshop. What do you think?

    PS: After hearing about so many cases of photos being stolen from flickr and other places, I'm now watermarking everything I upload to the internet, so apologies for that.

    That's very cool. If you could get it to illuminate her face and such a tad more, I think you'd have a really awesome shot.

    (Btw, your watermark is quite tasteful and well placed. Very unobtrusive in this image.)

    very cool idea, and the lightbulb glow is well done...
    try experimenting a bit with adding some light to her otherhand, maybe some on her face, and the arm that;s holding the bulb, highlights in her eyes too....you know, as though the bulb were casting light on her

    cool shot for sure!

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah, I wish I could make it look like the light bulb was lighting her up .. I tried, but it looked very fake, I guess it's beyond my photoshop skills! :)

    Thanks for all the comments!

    You could do a whole series of these... I'm thinking of Uncle Fester in the bath tub with the lightbulb in his mouth.. etc.. lol.
