Not bad - but I found it a really difficult subject to shoot. I ended up using a tripod with a longer exposure and a much smaller aperture which I think gives the pretty 'starburst' effect round the lights (look closely below). When you look at a christmas tree the lights are sparkly but the camera just loses them if you're not careful.

Mine casual raw shots from my compact one with 100 iso and one with 400 iso. Just developed with a profile. I am just learning now.

Hi chikka- nice tree... and a decent exposure,given the potentially troublesome light background..! Just keep an eye on linearity...!
gjtoth- you have a keen eye...
Martin- nice shot and tree....

That's a tough shot to pull off. The light behind the tree and the white 'snow' in front force the camera metering to in effect make the tree too dark. Spot meter on the tree, though, and we'll have blown-out highlights in front and behind. HDR could get the shot done, if we had a tripod in our pocket at the time.

Shooting this in the evening would eliminate the excess light coming in, but then the tree might get lost against the dark background becaue we're still dealing with the light foreground. It's a tough one.

The other comments are in reference to the tilt of the tree. It's best to keep the horizon of the photo level, for the benefit of the viewer.
