    What fun! And that little tree travelled with presents and all! :D
    I even recognise some of the areas! :D Like the station, and the famous water front (which got a name, but that I forgot... ).
    Why is it that some of your light sources (such as the sun in 5) look so ... funny. So painted?

    Love the idea, and the execution! It brings a smile to my face to picture you carting it around the city and setting it up. (And it's good to see you posting again).

    I really like many of the shots (there's an almost 'documentary' quality to how you've chosen your locations), but I especially like 1, 10 and 11

    Ha great idea for a photo series. I find it very amusing to picture someone walking around with the tree to set up in different locations but its great. My favorite overall is 11 with 1 following close behind. Maybe its just me but number 3 seems slightly tilted and may need some straightening.

    Thanks for all the nice comment guys :) was a really fun series to do!

    To answer your question LAFoto "Why is it that some of your light sources (such as the sun in 5) look so ... funny. So painted?"

    I used the HDR technique of combining..well.. i thnk it was 9 in this case, exposures together. In some cases, it threw the light sources off a little bit and did make them look a bit painted. :) I need to get better at HDR stuff really :)

    Anyways, thanks for the comments!
