Messed around with the xmas tree and my macro

The little lights can cause some cool light falloff-effects...









this was weird...

15 second exposure with a small aperture.



and the whole tree





Happy holidays everyone! Merry christmas and best wishes for the new year to you and your families!

Great shots, all of them, I like nr 4 best but that is just nitpicking.
Can you give me the type of the macro lens.

Well it's a very nice lens. Up till now I'm very pleased with it. Handles nicely and is sharp enough for good results.

The vivitar and lester dine are identical. Make sure you get the A version though.

Also, you might want to wait with this one and have fun with your other lenses first. Macro is much more fun in spring and summer anyways

Anyway you'll also need a good tripod. I can really feel the limitations of my little cheap Slik tripod now...going to invest in a Velbon 450R soon.
1:1 handheld is impossible for me without SR...

The first one is very nice! That would make a great Christmas card.

You know, I love macro shots but I had not thought of applying the macro to the Christmas theme. Really great creativity and shots here TDN. I also like the first one best but you might try the same shot with more light and a lower ISO. That Kiron really pulled sharp detail out of the feathers in the second shot too. Great job.
