'Twas The Night Before
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.

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.
