Christmas, when all through the house
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

Taken late last night... trying to get and idea on how to do long exposure...

used a tripod.. sat on the floor (dogs could not understand that one so about 1 out of every 5 photos looked in focus!) so over all I took about 50 shots.....

I think you did very well with the long exposure Tricia! You can even up the ISO on your camera to maybe..... 400ISO and then shoot at F16-F22 and see how that looks. It's all about playing! I LOVE the sparkles on the lights! How nice! beautiful!

This is very elegant. I like the warmer lights. It well executed, good exposure and quite a nice contrast. Right in the spirit of Christmas.

Merry Christmas Tricia.

Waw...the Santa Claus was so generous with you!
I think you have all been very good!

Hi Tricia,
it's so romantic and the lights are so warm. You had a wonderful Christmastree and beautiful presents. The lights are like little stars, I love it.
I send you my warmest Christmas-greetings

How pretty this looks with the lights reflecting on the wrapping papers.
Nicely composed Tricia, the tripod, etc worked well
Merry Christmas to you and your family

Hello Tricia, late at night?
Probably your only chance to shoot this scene?
A good shot with the light reflecting on the presents and giving a warm glow.
The long exposure worked out imo.
I guess that the parcels are now opened?
Best wishes Jean.
