Seasonal Sparkle

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Seasonal Sparkle
Seasonal Sparkle
This is a repeat of an old favorite, originally shot 5 years ago, and re-shot this afternoon. There was a particular angle and mood that I wanted to replicate while improving the focal points, highlights, and the placement of the lines and bokeh. This took over 70 shots and maybe an hour! Fortunately I had learned from the original shoot to start with plenty of time before dark.
