I got my inspiration from this quote. The artist would see what lies under the fabric. The normal eye would only see what on top, or the more basic view. I used the swirls in the sky to give a Van Gough look. I used modeling paste for the mountains to make them pop more. I took an ordinary scene and gave it an almost enchanted look.

Just an ordinary bottle of water can be extraordinary if you change the lighting. Using a flashlight under the bottle gave it a glow. With the dark background it showed a luminescence that you wouldn't normally see. You can see the little bubbles attached on the sides and the condensation giving it a matte appearance.
This photo of a dandelion puff uses back lighting. Catching the sun directly behind the puff creates a new view. It seems to be the source of light in the picture. You can also see that the back lighting makes the front outlines look dark. A silhouette of the dandelion is another way to see it.
