    Tracy:

    #1 I love the color and light and depth. I know the window light is behind her but she still looks good and I see light in her eyes.
    (I wish my living room/room where the tree is was open and light the way everyone else's is! LOL someday, when I can repaint and recarpet.....)

    #2 great depth and the bokeh is beautifully abstract. Overall it is bit dark.

    #3 a little dark but super-cute!!!

    #4 ornament looks fine to me; only the bottom edge may be a little cool compared to rest of photo. But hardly worth worrying about. I love macro ornament shots. I did a bunch last year and the year before. Have to do that again

    Shadow:

    I agree with Tracy's CC. Also that vertical line on the camera right side is distracting. Can it be cloned out?

    Ahhh... the upcoming holiday is making me crazy... sorry I haven't CCed.

    Stephanie -

    1 - You have already gotten great CC on this picture. Have you played with your flash setting? Do you use it on manual or ETTL? I agree about it might be being underexposed. I can't comment on color since I am on uncalibrated monitor but he does slightly look yellow.

    2 - Lovely photo - for some reason I am wanting to see the top of the tree. I think that would complete this


    Tracy -

    1. Great expression... I too would have love to see more room on the right side.

    2. Since the focus is in such a small flower it sort of get lost. I wish more of the other flowers were also in focus but bokeh is great on this one.

    3. Cute snap

    4. I would brighten maybe a tad and warm it up. Looks a bit cool.

    Shadow -

    This is a great picture overall. I would also clone out that line on the right.

    Amy - here is my CC. She is too cute btw.

    Have you tried opening up your aperture to get more of the bokeh affect or are you trying to get the tree focus also in the background?

    Also, I didn't see whether you ran noiseware on this. Her black shirt/dress is looking a tinge cyan/green. I would warm up the picture a bit more. Lighting is nice.

    Thanks El, yeah in that shot I had my kit lens on (18-55mm) so the aperture couldn't open as far as I usually like. I did take other shots of her with my 50mm for better bokeh, like this----also not an exciting pose, but she was NOT into this at all that day....

    Really quick fly-by to say I won't be participating in the group for a few weeks, between Christmas, some traveling, and DH's vacation time. Have a great Christmas, everybody!

    I agree with El about the bokeh. But I know how hard that can be. I'm also noticing some blue in it as well. I'm finding it so difficult to use window light with the Christmas tree. I notice that the subject looks blue, while everything the background looks yellow/orange.

    El, I think that the setup for this is just slightly off. I know it was impossible with the bed/bench, but rotating him slightly more toward the window would have given you a bit more flattering light on his face. Love the flare though! I can never get nice lens flare.

    I'll search through my images from this week. I really don't think I anything but snapshots, though. I've been so busy, and not to mention discouraged with how my indoor shots are coming out, that I just don't have anything.

    ETA: Have a great Christmas, Tracy!

    No window light was used in these; unfortunately there was no available light at the time of day I did these so I used bounced flash. Funny though, I feel that Eva looks very warm in her hair/skin and that if I warmed up the 1st pic any more she would look wrong. I actually think the tree looks too cool in the 1st pic now that I think about that...

    El I love the flare too, and the color. I agree about the lighting; also I would like this more with a vertical/closer-up crop of him.

    I managed to get one of the boys together in their Christmas sweaters after Carson got home from school. It was a little overexposed in camera, so I'm not sure if I overcorrected it or not.
