I've had my Christmas tree up since.... well, since the end of November. Ha! I was a little excited this year! The lighting hasn't been great during the day though, so I haven't managed some very good pictures.
The other night I was playing around with my camera & decided to break out my macro attachments & crosshatch filter. I'd read somewhere online that the best time to take a photo of a lit tree was a night, so I wanted to give it a whirl. Here are a few pictures I snapped:
I'm really happy with the effect the crosshatch filter gives! Don't those bright stars make you smile?
I love how the stained glass ornaments look reflecting the light. I have quite a few, most strategically placed in front of light bulbs.
I haven't played as much with my macro attachments. There's a bit of a trick to them, but I'm pretty happy with how this ornament & the gold tulle looks:
As you can see, my tree has a lot of stained glass, quite a bit of red & white & a touch of blue. There's a mix of handmade, new & childhood ornaments, but I still think it all works together nicely.
What does your holiday tree look like?
