Challenge: Contre-jour III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D3X
Lens: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 G ED
Location: Annapolis Maryland inner harbor, United States
Date: Dec 31, 2010
Aperture: F18
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/3
Date Uploaded: Jan 1, 2011

Found a beautiful christmas tree in the inner harbor. I set the Fstop and sutter speed and tried hard not to get knocked over by the thousands of people brushing by. Post editing; apply unsharpen mask, resized (thats it). No flash or other light sources used, just the christmas lights them selves. I figured if the camera was pointing toward the main light source, why not make the light its self the subject.
