I am most definitely at beginner level, but I set to before the tree came down on Sunday night and these are the results.
Not overly spectacular (our tree just had one small set of lights), but undeniably the effect is there.
As everyone else had gone to bed, I slipped the angel off the top of the tree to try a shot with an object in the foreground. The focus isn't sharp and the picture is quite grainy (I had the camera hand-held because I would have made too much of a racket digging out a tripod at that time of night!)
I'm happy, I just need to get scrapping some pictures now. I can't believe that looking back it was October that I made my last scrapbook page and I have a whole holiday's worth of pictures since then let alone Christmas.
