|Winner Dove, Shelley Schipper
"This was from a Christmas tree at work, where I was struck by
the symbolism of the descending dove."
To capture the image she used her Nikon Coolpix 995 set at 1/21
sec at f3.8. The flare around the lights was enhanced using the
Photoshop plug-in Knoll Light Factory.
|Merry Christmas, Angela Holder
Angela put some work and some thought into the creation of this image.
"I placed these items (a candle and two mini trees) in a dark room, lit the candle, and metered off the candle flame for exposure. I shot this photo intending to use it for our Christmas cards this year."
To create the image Angela used her Canon EOS D60 digital camera
and Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM lens. Exposure was 1/8 sec. at f4. The
only changes done in Photoshop were the addition of the border and
greeting at the bottom.
||Santa, Greg Yahr
The expressions on the kids faces really make this photo.
"The photo was taken at a local mall where I spent an
afternoon with my canon G2 digital looking for holiday images. The
image was shot with available light with the camera set at ISO 400.
The hand held exposure was 1/13th at f8. After I got home I
downloaded the image and added a watercolor affect and border in Photoshop."
