This was a fun shot to take. I spent about an hour fixing my settings and getting everything just right. I love a challenge and this was definitly an enjoyable one.

Editing:

Fixed a few spots that were scuffed up on the backdrop.
Sharpened, resized and sharpened again.
Took some red out, it was overbaring.
Used the burn tool on the sides. Not to much though.

Great photography...Rich colors...Simplified...
No worries about Santa's little helper being cold late Christmas Eve...at least not after the stockings have been filled and all important items are well hung. ;)

Great, creative shot. Love the lights, background colour - and the seduction of that bra. Anything could have went on that line but the bra adds a whole new level. Congrats Sonifo.

Terrific setup, and a big raspberry <pbpbpbpbpbpb> to the prudish trolls and their inability to see what a lovely catalog item this is indeed.

I pointed to this entry about 12 seconds after the rollover and told my wife it would ribbon. When you remove all doubt like that, you've done a great job indeed. Congrats!

great setup. I think I'd rather see the background without the bright spot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2005 12:19:32 PM
Why can't it be both? ;-)
Flawless execution. The lights-as-clothesline add that something extra to put this over the top. 10.

X-mas card material great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2005 10:10:21 PM
Haha how cute is that. The spot in the background is nice, but mabe a white color would have made it stand out more? Although it would have obstructed the white trim. Good job though

Very well done. I love the stars from the lights. Nicely lit and good background. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2005 12:38:04 PM
Great idea and exposure. Composition might be strengthened if the lights were more at a diagonal (the straight horizontal and vertical lines could be improved by less rigid composition imho).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2005 08:25:59 AM
Apart from the lightened part of the background in the middle this is super! I would have darkened the background to completely black. As it is, the lightened part in the middle will show through on a lot of monitors, especially TFT one like on this shitty laptop I am using at work :)

12/12/2005 12:49:14 AM
Excellent. I love the simplicity of this. Great detail and lighting. The string of twinkly lights is wonderful with the colors and the way you captured them. I wonder if the background were solid black if it wouldn't have been a bit less distracting. Hmmmm

This is a sweet shot...very creative!
