    Thought I would try my hand at a few holiday pictures, as well as post a little "Merry Christmas to TPF"note.
    I am so grateful that I found this forum with wonderful people who are so willing to give suggestions, critiques, and encouragement in general. Thanks everyone!:D

    Now for the pictures. As you can see from my username, I rather like Peanuts so yesturday I tried some long exposures to obtain the 'star' effect. Worked, meh, fine, the white balance is off a tidge bit (Okay. little bit more than a tidge ;) ) In addition, I will put on the more traditional Christmas shots. I put this thread into snapshots mostly because I have now seen what I need to improve on such as
    A. Use a real tree. Fake tree needles aren't visually appealing
    B. It is much easier to clean off the bulb before taken the photo, as opposed to trying to clone all of the specks off of it when processing the photo.

    Enjoy.

    This is a somewhat different Christmas tree decoration than you would normally find here! :D Very nice.
    Do there happen to be any close-ups of Snoopy? Maybe? My daughter loves Snoopy!
    Or Lucy, for that matter?

    And I like the outcome of your little experiment here very much :D!!

    Thanks everyone!
    I do have a snoopy shot, I wasn't exactlly happy with the composition, but I will post it just for you guys :). I didn't quite get through every character on the tree, so when I do that, I will 'awake' this thread and post some more. Once again, thanks everyone and I hope everyone has a great holiday!

    Speaking of Schroeder. Here are some holiday pictures of my 2 year old mini schnauzer named Schroeder which were taken just a few hours ago. I think these pictures fit the title rather well.

    1. Schroeder's profile (not to fond of the close cropping :S whoops)

    2. Again.. not wonderful with composition but a sweet picture nonetheless)
