Special Effects ~ Fast as Lightning!

My style as a photographer is fairly traditional.  I love pictures that look crisp and vibrant, but represent the moment.  However, sometimes playing with special effects is fun, too.  If you only have you portrait made once per year or per five years, this might not be a great idea.  But for those who have multiple sessions per year or who take hundred of pictures, special effects can be fun.

Here are a couple of special effects I have been playing with lately.  Both were done with snapshots rather than professional portraits.  One is from a baby dedication of a sweet family member and the the other is my favorite soccer player.  I think the lightning effect would be awesome for senior guys, too.  I will also be playing with bubbles and a special fantasy set in the near future. What is your opinion on special effects?
