    Christmas is about fun... and the nativity story features a big star in the sky!

    Having image export issues so I've submitted it as a small attachment.
    Merry Christmas Everybody!

    Any comments/criticism/tips would be greatly appreciated for shooting christmas lights at night, once the contest is over or a PM would work :) This is my first attempt of a car across the street.

    Well I just got my first DSLR and am getting into photography, so I'll give these weekly contests a shot. Here's my entry:

    Excellent photos everyone. Let's get straight to the judging!

    butch10x: the shot made me smile! I appreciate your niner pride, as well as some nice DoF.

    seattle: beautiful lights. It's neat how the one bulb in focus gets lost in the creamy bokeh goodness of the rest. Well done.

    Cheese&Apple: interesting shot. We have some houses nearby with crazy amounts of decorations and lights. Makes me want to go document a few.

    Keleko: I really like the angle and tone of this shot. Is it HDR?

    deep diver: the lights are pretty here. It's a good abstract. Where/what is it exactly?

    NeGRit0: I am a sucker for reflections in ornaments and eyeballs! Looks like you brought out the big guns to make this photograph! Well done

    iJohn8.80: beautiful light. I never get tired of being in and photographing candlelight. This definitely has the feel I was hoping for.

    BarryJ: this has a very magical feel to it. The lights look as if they are floating, like something out of a Harry Potter scene.

    genshi: I have some great memories as a kid of setting up these little Christmas villages with my parents. This really took me back.

    macAllen: there's something about this shot I like, and I don't know exactly what it is. I enjoyed the composition, the DoF, and the subject. You produced some really nice tone.

    Droid13: Merry Christmas! Well done! Very creative.

    Photoshopper: now I'm hungry... Your use of light and DoF make this a great shot. I really want to eat one of those cupcakes, and the lights behind them compliment the shot beautifully. Excellent use of light.

    fireman32: as I mentioned above, reflections are a soft spot of mine. Neat shot!

    pakyooh: won't lie, I laughed. The little dogs look like they'd rather be doing anything but posing for this shot, which makes it really funny. Great work!

    Caliber26: Nice looking pup. Would make a good Christmas card!

    DirtySocks85: I'm glad you're giving these contests a go! Keep shooting and posting. The angle is creative.

    3rd place: ijohn.8.80
    2nd place: pakyooh
    1st place: Photoshopper

    Well done everyone! You're up Photoshopper!

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Congrats Photoshopper!

    Well done all, some great shots with lots of creativity shown. :)
  23. macrumors 68000

    Yes, mine was HDR. Congrats to the winner! I think he bribed the judge with food, though. ;)

    Congrats Photoshopper

    I took this one on Sunday evening, and would have considered entering it instead if I hadn't already submitted the first image. I think it's less creative, but probably a better image (mostly due to the lack of background distraction). Also, I love the facial expressions I happened to catch in the reflection!

    The Sweet Grand

    I think I've attached my image. I can't figure out how to get it into the body of this file.
