After a light supper on Chrsitmas Eve, the kids and I relax on the couch and watch our favorite seasonal movie — A Christmas Carol. Its the 1938 version with Reginald Owen and Gene Lockhart. Of course we eat our traditional popcorn while watching the movie. In this scene you can see Tiny Tim atop Bob Cratchets shoulders while Bob talks with Mrs. Cratchet and the other little Cratchets look on.

Cool shot. I like the contrast between the popcorn (very buttery looking) and the movie scene.

Bynx,

Classic. I remember when there was a push to have popcorn as a decoration on Christmas trees to save electricity. Every ant, cockroach, and crawling bug in Honolulu began to celebrate that suggestion.

Aloha

Great shot, Bynx. I especially like the clarity of the TV screen. TV images can be difficult to capture. The popcorn seems to jump out from the screen.

I think it makes a difference Cal, but thats my laptop monitor that is supplying the background shot. I think if Id shot the tv screen it would have been grainier results.

Nice shot Bynx. LCD screen works well with digital cameras. If you shot it on a CRT, you'll capture the scan lines on the CRT. Where the electron beam is drawing on the CRT will be brighter than the other parts of the CRT screen.
