Christmas Photo Project Day 12

Ice Snowman and BokehI couldn’t resist sharing another shot of Mr. Ice Snowman.

I loved this image as soon as I shot it.

But, I also wanted to touch it up and do a few cool post-processing things to it.

I am loving how this little ornament is adding to my last couple of photos.

I got this idea from a page I saw somewhere about photo projects and it suggested finding a small item that shouldn’t be there and bringing it along to serve as a foreground object.

Well, I decided to incorporate a little of this into the Christmas theme.  So far, he’s a very fun little guy!

Now, this is not to suggest that I will be including him in all my photos – I mean I DO have a trip to Asheville planned, along with the Grove Park Inn where the National Gingerbread Competition is on display, as well as the Biltmore House.

It’s just that I like to add a different spin on the Christmas slant, you know?

As for what I actually did to this photo, I added a green color overlay after the fact – you know, for Christmas-effect.

Exif data:

f/5.6 | 1/8 | ISO 400 | 40mm | Exposure comp: +1 | Sony a57

  1. Very neat effect and by the way (a bit off topic) Kevin works for Canon and would totally approve of your ad, lol!! Seriously, I keep get yelled at that I haven’t signed up with them as an affiliate marketer yet.


  2. ok… everyone knows I sometimes try to be funny, ’cause I don’t think I’m so good with the genuine sentiment thing… but* I am willing to swear that if you look at this photo real quick it’s like the little guy is…. ‘flipping everyone off’**

    Just had to share that.

    *damn, this is such a variation on ‘the boy that cries wolf, that I can’t believe it!
    ** no! really and not in any nasty way, but in a ‘…your parents have looked away, so it’s hey! you!’
    *** his right hand
