I’m pleased you like it. visualnorway 2014-12-19 at 11:31 4 years ago You have made a very fine Christmas card that you shall be proud of. Personally I may have considered flipping it horizontally, but that is a matter of taste. Merry Christmas to you and your dear ones! Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-20 at 19:56 4 years ago Rune, thank you, I’m pleased you like it. Have you noticed how many times you would flip a photo of mine horizontally? I like it this way but it’s interesting to know. Merry Christmas to you as well! Gail Dixon 2014-12-22 at 05:06 4 years ago Very nice, Petra! I wish you a very Merry Christmas! Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-22 at 22:12 4 years ago Gail, thank you. Merry Christmas to you as well! Donna 2014-12-22 at 21:21 4 years ago Beautiful Petra! Merry Christmas! Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-22 at 22:13 4 years ago Donna, thank you. Merry Christmas! Linda at To Behold The Beauty 2014-12-23 at 06:33 4 years ago Wow, Petra! This appears to me to be a very difficult grouping of subjects to photograph, getting the exposure right for the overall shot. But you've accomplished it marvelously here. I agree that it would make a beautiful Christmas card. Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-23 at 15:24 4 years ago Linda, thank you. I was exposing for the lights not to have them over burnt and then corrected the shadows a bit in post-production to have good balance. I took the photo behind a shop window lit in the evening in a dark street, there was too much of contrast to get it all right in the camera. This photo has taught me a great deal. J_on_tour 2014-12-23 at 20:43 4 years ago Love the contrast and colours here. I'll catch up with your other material just after Christmas … trying to get a Christmas post published. Happy Christmas to you Petra and your family. Petra Pavlátková 2014-12-23 at 21:32 4 years ago J, thank you for both your praise and wishes. I’m looking forward to your Christmas post as well as to your next comments, they always bring interesting insight into my photos. Let’s enjoy the Christmas time, it’s right at the door!
