A Christmas Tree decoration. This is really me just playing with artificial lighting, something that I struggle with a lot. The actual result was nowhere near as "good" as this but Photoshop came to my rescue! I expect this to be a mid/low 5 kind of shot.

Editing Steps:
I can't exactly remember and I deleted the TIF file in a disk clean-up session but something along the lines of...
Convert from RAW
Tone mapping
Seletive Curves on background and decoration
Dodge/Burn on decoration
Save for web
