    Christmas Photos - First Attempt

    While my son and I were setting up the tree and starting to decorate, something horrible happened, but I was able to get in 'on film' so that's OK!
    I know there are some distracting elements in the background and the sharpness of my 18-135 lens is poor...

    Hi Scott,
    I cannot claim to be the Originitor of the concept, I saw something similar on a safety flier at work.
    It is a fun photo though

    I have a wickedly dark sense of humor and something like this could be Christmas card material! Much more fun than a photo of the family, wearing seasonaly (in)appropriate sweaters huddled lovingly with Sam the chocolate lab on the front porch.

    Tsk...

    Yet another Christmas decoration related incident! Such a shame! And I bet he was on Santa's "Nice" list this year, too!

    At least he's lit in the Holiday Spirit! Maybe Santa won't trip over him in the middle of the night!

    Fun shot, Brian!

    lol Terry.
    Thanks Harmon.
    I am still struggling with the white balance. Maybe it would be better if it wasn't so tungsten looking.

    Brian,

    I like it the way it is. The warm feeling is lovely and I too think it would make a great Christmas card.

    Much better that the traditional and one I would have to keep.

    Thanks for the ideas!

    Mark and Darlene, thank you for your comments! I don't know why, I just feel like starting Christmas early this year. I have half a dozen family coming for Thanksgiving weekend and I'm pretty excited.

    I couldn't sleep last night with the WB issue bothering me
    Here is a 'less warm' version.

    Honestly, after attempting to take this photo, the efs 17-55 2.8 is looking mighty nice
    Maybe Santa reads this forum?
