Week 34, Day 241, Moravian Star

Our church has a Moravian Star near the top of the pipe of our pipe organ to represent the Star of Bethlehem.   It is lit during Christmas time.

In this photo I like how the light illuminates the pipes behind it.

Lessons Learned:
  • Sometimes the photo that I end up using as the photo of the day is a photo that I didn't think I would be using.  This was one of those days.  I took some photos of the advent candles with the poinsettias behind it.  I thought that would be the photo, but when I returned home, I liked the effects of this one.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/125 sec, Aperture f/2.2, ISO 400, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, handheld.

Nice shots. Sometimes I hardly find the focus using autofocus with Canon 50mm, especially when it's dark and just a little light goes through. Does your Canon 50mm have the same problem?

Yes, my Canon 50mm has the same problem with focusing in low light situations.
