Challenge: Tacky Holiday Decorations (Classic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D100
Location: Dresher, PA
Date: Dec 25, 2003
Date Uploaded: Dec 25, 2003

I've travelled through four states over the past week or so, and seen a lot of decorations for the holidays. Some tasteful, some not. Regrettably, the most tacky display is right around the corner from me. I think these folks have been collecting electric xmas stuff for years and put it all out on the lawn this year, but with little attempt to make it a unified display. Unfortunately, my shot missed the giant snowman off to the right and an electric creche on the left of their driveway.

Way overdone but not so bad as the others. Photo is good too.

So very well overdone to the point of true Christmas tackiness...the roof is a wonder....the white balance here is a little on the yellow side ...can you select your own? Otherwise this is quite fine.

Lights are a bit fuzzy, nicely framed. Closer in would be better (I know sometimes that's trespassing!)

Technical: wow. Definitely fits the challenge. Exposure composition focus lighting all good.

Personal: Yikes. Think of the power bill!
