Looking a bit more like Christmas

Postby skwij » Dec 09, 2008 11:40 pm

At least at work, it is. The girls did a wonderful job on our tree this year.

I was BUSY doing hair all day, so didn't get to contribute much at all.



I don't think these pictures do it justice. I'll need to play around with some settings on the camera, and see if I can get "better" shots.

Skwij, try boosting the ISO up from 160 on your Kodak V803 to say 400 & try again.

The wood is clear between the knots.

That is a pretty tree.
We've now got ours up and this year we changed to LED lights - gold and silver! Very pretty, but I can't get a good picture of them. Any hints for my cameras Ron? :)

That is a pretty tree. Having your tree up surely does get you in the Christmas spirit. I concur with Sheikea's comment about cats and the tree.... I'm sure my cat Missy would just love to explore that tree... but I highly doubt it would involve much sleeping! :lol:

What a pretty tree!...and it looks so great against that fabulous red wall. We don't put up a tree indoors anymore, since it's just the two of us, and we go to our daughter's with the three grandkids for Christmas. But I do like a lot of outdoor lights in this dark season.
