|Winner: Tess Campbell, Ornament
This hand blown glass Christmas ornament was placed on
heavily frosted windowsill using poster putty to hold it in
position and prevent if from rolling onto the floor.
An Olympus C-2100 UZ digital camera was used set to the
macro mode and handheld. The resulting image was re-sized
and frame added using PhotoShop.

This shot was taken for a Christmas card for our family to send to
our friends this year.
It is a photo of my daughter's favorite Christmas ornament, a
symbol of one of her special pastimes. It caught my attention one
night when I admiring the tree and the soft glow of the lights that
seemed to make this skater come to life. I immediately thought this
would make a great shot and went to get my camera and tripod.
It was taken with a Canon D60, ISO 100 and a Canon 28-105 lens.
Unfortunately, I don't have the shutter and aperture information any
longer although I am pretty sure it was f2.8 and probably around
1/15 or so. The image was sharpened slightly in Photoshop Elements
to accentuate the glass ornament.
We just finished decorating the tree, and I thought it looked really
nice. I used my star filter and placed a vignette around the picture
in Photoshop to focus attention on the tree lights and Mr. and Mrs.
