I don't really like Christmas trees. I just don't, can't help it. I wrote a little bit why last year.
However I still make a couple pictures of the ones I find, and sometimes post it. Last year's post about Christmas Trees helped me discover a little bit about the hated Christmas Tree story I was forced to read in first grade. That story was more than likely based on a tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Andersen's story also ended badly for the tree, but you don't really feel sorry it.
Like most years I wanted to make an HDR picture of our tree. I tried to place my camera where I haven't tried previously, above the tree. I also used Photoshop CS5's merge to HDR pro feature instead of pushing the pixels around with open source software. I also tried a picture using a flash. Both make reasonable record shots of this year's tree. Maybe if I think about it a bit more, I can make an interesting picture.
