Hi LBoy,

I prefer the second image - the first seems to have a yellowish cast across it. Also I am a sucker for diagonals... really cool looking candles too...

I agree with Dom. The white balance is better on the second one. I like to do a diagonal shot occasionally but it can be overdone. In this case, it works well. Now as for holiday lights, I think the intent was for light to be eminating from the subject of the photo.

These are times that try men's souls. My original intent was that the photos should show the lights "On" but you are correct, the instructions are not specific enough.

With that in mind I'll forgo the Grinch in me as I did in "thatsanicepicture2" display of lights. It's the festive season, you are declared proficient in "Holiday Lights."

Yes, the second one has a more accurate white balance. Personally I'm not taken by the diagonal in this shot. But then again that's totally personal.

These are among the most festive candle holders I've ever seen. Perhaps because I've never paid much attention to them before. Thanks for the posting.

Aloha

Non-holiday themed lights (e.g. your bathroom lightbulb unless it is somehow holiday related),
Well this is the part I read and thought ... mm ok these photographs will be fine then. They are light related (being candle holders) and the photographs were taken at a Christmas Market.

mmmm.. and Ikinda thoughtherewas lots of light/lights being emitted/reflected here.:blah:

You wouldn't want everyone to be thinking inside the same box now would you ?

Of course if I had read the "thatsanicepicture2" thread I would have understood.... sorry.
