Every year I take some pictures of our tree. Tonight I was photographing this ornament that was a gift and is a new addition to our tree:
For this shot I choose a f-stop of 2.5 because I wanted the snowflake to be sharp but the pine needles to be a bit soft. I used a tripod so that I could take multiple shots that would be exactly the same except for the shutter speed. I then picked three of the photos and created an HDR image using Photomatix. I used the “natural” setting because with this photo I am just trying to show detail and leaving it at that. Thoughts or comments? feel free to leave them below.
This post was written in part as a response to the Weekly Photo Challenge the theme of which is one.
I would like to wish each of you a Merry Christmas, all the best to you.
