Default Christmas Lights

Not sure which forum these would fit, but here are a couple of Christmas tree images I took.
Nikon D90 + Tamron 18-275 VC.

Hope all of you have a Merry Christmas and a enjoyable Holiday season!

Jehan

This was taken at the Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo. Not sure I like the LED lights for Christmas decorations--they may be eco-friendly, but IMO lack the warmth of incandescent bulbs. I adjusted the WB a bit during post processing to add some warmth.



This next one was in another type of zoo--my home! "Zoom"- ed while the shutter remained open. Comments on the effect?

Jehan, Thank you for your holiday wishes, and back at you friend.



My that first tree is a big-un. I must try the zoom thing you did on the second it looks fun! Peace... Frank

Thanks Kevin, Walter, and Frank!

The tree at the zoo I estimate to be about 40ft tall? It was pretty, but as I said, the use of LED bulbs made it look rather cold vs. the warmth one usually associates with a Christmas Tree that is all trimmed and adorned.

The zooming during exposure is a neat technique...make sure you use a tripod though!

Jehan
