Week 34, Day 239, Christmas Tree Revisted

It was another unproductive night of taking photos.  I wasn't happy with any of them.  Sometimes it's just like that.

I first tried some more Tilt-Shift simulations of a room, then I moved to outdoor photographs of the house. It's 15 degrees F right now, so it's kind of cold.  I ended with some photos of our Christmas Tree through the window.  The photo is ok, but not great.  Maybe I'll have better luck tomorrow.

Lessons Learned:
  • While photographing our house from outside, I really noticed the effect of having the lens being straight up and down vs tipped upward toward the second floor.  The effects were interesting, and each could be used in different ways.  I have read about this in the past, but just really began to notice it this evening.
Photo details: Exposure time 2 sec, Aperture f/8.0, ISO 400, Focal Length 38 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, tripod.

Seeing from the outside of the room, a tree looks more dazzling.

Thank you for showing a heartwarming view.

Best regards.
