Got this interesting effect of colored icicles hanging from the tips of the tree when playing around with the K20D.

Trust all of you are having a good holiday season!

Very interesting. We'll probably get our tree this weekend.

A good holiday season here. Just got back from taking my aunt Christmas shopping for the day. Unfortunately, back to work tomorrow. But, it made a nice break for the week and I got a lot taken care of today.

Hope yours is going well, too.

Patty

Thanks! I was tinkering around with the K20D and expected to get an image that showed a blur of lights. Instead I ended up with the tree and ornaments in generally sharp focus with only the lights in motion. It was somewhat of an accidental measure since I had previsouly set up the camera to take our family pictures.

I had set the camera up for the portraitson manual with a Tv of 1/2 sec in order to capture the lights from the tree and set my flash at 1/16th power pointed upwards. When I took this picture all I did was to move the camera in an upward direction after I pressed the shutter. As it turns out, the flash froze the image of the tree and ornaments when it discharged. The shutter remaining open caught the streaks of the lights when I moved the camera. Since the ambient light was rather dim, the image did not record the motion relative tothe tree & ornaments! :idea:

Patty and Sarah Joyce: Thanks for your comments as well!
