Taken in a park nearby, with the selective coloring in my camera. It's christmas lights on a dead tree, already, kind of surprised me. Editing was only cropping, brightness/contrast, and save for web, I almost missed the challenge completely..

And just so you know, the selective coloring in the photo was done in my camera, I love that mode in it so much, for the basic challenges and the not :)

Critique Club Review:

Technical: Color, saturation, hue: Colors have been altered for effect, adding a bit of drama and coldness to the piece. Fits the dead tree well. Focus is very good.

Reaction: The trunk and background lights go against the idea of bokeh. While the limbs and sky work well. I'm not sure what you are trying to say with this piece. The out of focus bulbs that jut out from the tree are distractions for me, while the out of focus bulbs that lie flatter, work better.

Incredible sense of drama and epic scope achieved for a handful of xmas lights?? Miraculous. And bokeh is an essential part of the effect. 10

Selective coloring? I think that is against Basic Editing...
