Default Christmas in a childs eyes

I think we are sending this out as our holidays card.

Hi Chael,

Once again, you have another winner of your son

Once again, you have used shadow and light very
effectively!

In a way, it seems as if your son is illuminated less
by the lights and rather by the "glow of the season".

Kudos!

I think the "holiday" is called Christmas.

In my best politcally correct and diversity based voice I say "Holidays," but Christmas it is.

Thanks for the comments. This was the first bulb he put on this year and after he hung it he just stood there for a few seconds, which REALLY heped with having to use such a slow shutter. I took about 25 pictures of him around the tree and most came out blurry. The first two worked best. I ran the photos through NeatImage a couple times and color corrected in Photoshop. The ISO 800 was a bit grainy and the autowhite looked very yellow.

Here is the first picture of him putting the first bulb on. Have color corrected and run though NeatImage once. We liked this one too, but thought it had too much space between Padon and the tree. It still seems a bit much in the picture above as well, but it was closer in so it doesn't feel as open to me. The focus was also off a tad.

That is a classic, I think I would use it also if I were you.

You should be enormously pleased with yourself for this photo.

Thanks again!

Having printing problems getting photo's to come out correctly. If anyone has any suggestions I am posting a question in the Injet topic.

Thanks!

The first picture you posted is great. The focus on his face is somewhat soft, and it works perfectly in that picture. It's not the sort of picture you'd want to be super-sharp.
