Cosmic Challenge: Christmas Lights

One thing I love about K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Challenge is that I get to mess around with the photos.

That said, Christmas lights don’t really need all that much messing around with!

Snapseed has a good selection of frames that keep their detail even when scaled up. This one holds the blackness but has a subtle white line to contain the image.Xmas lights at Stanley Park's Christmas Village in SnapseedLights mixed with branches at my friend’s Christmas party, in the same frame.Lights mixed with branches at my friend's Christmas party in in SnapseedA red lit-up reindeer at Stanley Park’s Christmas Village, also Snapseed.A red lit-up reindeer at Stanley Park's Christmas Village in SnapseedXmas Lights strung in a Rhododendron bush run through the photo app Pixlromatic.Xmas Lights strung in a Rhododendron bush run through the photo app PixlromaticThis one was done in Photoshop, a layered shot of in-focus and out-of- focus lights reflected in the windows of the building opposite.More of the Cosmic Challenge: Christmas Lights.
