    Since it's Christmas season and it get's dark so early for most of us and there are lights everywhere, let's take advantage of it! For this challenge, use lights creatively. Light bokeh, light reflections, light painting... they can be your subject or used as background or to light your subject - the choice is yours. Have some fun with it! As always, please post only new photos that were taken for this challenge.

    Tamron 500mm mirrorlens & candlelight.
    In the Netherlands (also in Flanders, Belgium and certain parts of Germany) we are not yet ready for the Christmas season. We're used to start for Christmas after 5 december, so still a few days to go!

    [​IMG]christmascard by jwa04, on Flickr

    Two shot composite for the Christmas cards this year. I'll never take a family self portrait again, but we got the cliche awkwardly well lit family in front of bokeh ballicious christmas tree.

    Resembles a one-off, candlelight photographed with Tamron 500mm mirror lens in macro mode, edited with software program Pixlr (plugin Gleam).
    A quick walk through my village showed no Christmas decorations yet, in shop windows etc.
    (tomorrow, when it's the 5th of December, I'll tell you a little story so you know why the Dutch, although traditions start to fade, wait so long to decorate their homes.
