Christmas Spirit

Christmas Spirit

I wanted to post this image before we got too far past the holiday season for it to be topical. I went out the evening of New Year’s Day and shot a bracketed set of images.  Our neighbours the Olsens  put up wonderful Christmas light display every year. Each year they find new items to add to the show.

I used a 3 image bracket processed in Nik HDR Efex Pro 2. After returning the image to Adobe Lightroom, I found the color cast from the sodium vapour street lights to be quite distracting, so I went back into Color Efex Pro 4 and removed it. This made the tree in the center of the image a more natural color.

In the best light…
