Default Child And Christmas Tree

We know Christams Tree is always loved by children, along with the magic atmosphere they bring with them :



But what's it the point of view of the tree ?



P.S. :
Child And Christmas Tree :
- crop
- some noise cleaning
- automatic levels and contrast
- some, but not too much, dominant color removal ( the yellowish cast was appropriate for me with the sepia tone )
- duplicate layer
- sepia tone
- some rough erasing with a big brush of sepia tones layer tree parts.

Child From Christmas Tree :
- crop
- some noise cleaning
- automaic levels and contrast
- dominant color removal

Sergio,

I vote for the second photo, Aha I found it...
The greenish cast of the child in the first photo I found unattractive.

Sergio, I agree with Selvin. Just take out the green cast and it'll be great.

These are nice perspectives.

Regarding the second photo.
I think it is a shame that the foreground of the tree branches are blurry. This is something that I am also struggling with in my photoes at the moment.

The advice that I was given was to stand further away from the subject and rather zoom in to that framing.

Which lighting are you using? Is it just natural inside lights?

Is anyone having reflection problems or burnt out areas when they take photoes of shiny objects? It was sugested to me to use a polarization filter... Is anyone using these for their photoes? Any pointers or experiences with this?

Thanx for your appreciations.
Greenish ? Mmmmhhh, well I thought it was sepia !
So either my eyes or my displays need to be recalibrated

And now ?



Soundengineer, I have taken the second shot in macro mode, focus on Santa Claus. That's the reason why.
And,yes, lighting is the internal one, so , incandescent ( and not compensated at shooting time ).

BTW, digicamfan, Buon Natale is definitely correct ! Grazie, anche a te !

Much, much better Sergio. I really like it now. As for color calibration on monitors, I often wonder if other people are seeing magenta when I'm seeing red or blue when I'm seeing cyan. Wouldn't it be great if all monitors showed the same colors and all printers could print exactly what we see on our screens? Ah, but I'm daydreaming.
