You're too mysterious for me here, OB.

It did make me realise though, that Chris reacted in the ENTRIES thread, and I slavishly followed. Have removed my post, and will ask Chris to remove hers, so we can have a clean start.

That's not like you Chris. But it doesn't matter, as any shot will do, as you can edit it 'over the top.' Have a go at the sliders and filters, till you really get something bizarre.

I suppose the real issue for this theme is - how OTT is too OTT?  :D
1 body, 1 lens, 1 flash gun, 1 tripod, 1 cable release & 1 filter. Keeping it simple!
(I lied, just got a second lens!)

In the figurative meaning, it will depend on the person. What one thinks an outré outfit for instance, will be the norm for someone else.
Same goes for behaviour, car or body adornments, hair colour; you name it and you could be challenged at every point.
In photo editing, it is probably somewhat easier to agree.

In this case we are not challenging anybody, and everyone can post whatever he/she finds OTT.

I have an idea. It a bit predictable, but it's the best I've got so far. Early days though.
May the Force be with you.

Haven't got anything yet. Some ideas, but nothing executed.
Daughter has been over for a few days, and that means the camera stays at home.

I am still stumped. I only have one idea, but I used it a few weeks ago for a previous entry on here. It will fit the brief but I wanted to try something else. Failing any other ideas, it will be a repeat of the other image, but freshly taken of course.

An idea just came to me. Will have to do it tomorrow, so fingers crossed no-one else has the same plan and does it better.

I'm hoping for good shooting weather tomorrow. If not, I'll do an OTT editing job, something I rather like, but I hope to do something different for this.
