Winter Sparkle

Uploaded: December 04, 2007


Natural light, lightly reflective background, f/9, 1/3 sec, ISO 200, homemeade "reflector" (mine finally bit the dust!), Sigma 28-200mm lens, tripod, timer. Tinted blue and added stars for a more wintry, festive mood.

I like your set up and use of the star dust. The blue tone really adds to this as well. #800871
