Just Messing Around

I was messing around with my camera last night, trying to get the best shot of my Christmas tree all lit up in the dark living room. Which shot do you like best?

Number 1:

Number 2:

or number 3:

I think my favorite is the last one. I know that filmmakers are always trying to shoot in the golden hour of sunset so that they can get that beautiful amber color to the light. But, for some reason, I prefer the lights when they're white. The last picture is more true to reality, so maybe that's why I like it. I don't know.

Sad thing is, I cycled through all the different modes for shooting night pictures that the camera had, and the picture I like the most was just taken with the auto mode.

Anyway, I'll stop wasting your time.


  1. I agree the last one is the best. Looks great!!!

  2. Sorry, but flash always overexposes and ruins pictures, especially in close spaces in the dark. The second is the best, unless you get setup for an HDR.
