Every year, here in Rancho Cordova, CA... the City erects a very large Christmas Tree in the park that is two blocks from my home. Then a few days later, there is a Christmas celebration in the park, with City officials and residents of Rancho Cordova attending. The celebration ends with a large Fireworks Display that shakes up the entire neighborhood.

Camera: D3, Tripod Mounted W/24-70 mm f/2.8. PP Adobe LR5 & CS6. 

 

Enjoy,

 

Don

James:

 

Thanks for your remarks. It was quite difficult focusing with so many light points. The camera sensor was working overtime to handle so many color combinations. Not sharp like a thinly lit tree would be. However, I liked the apparent fuzzyness of the LED's so I went with it.

Sometimes in tricky lighting situations it's better to use manual focus. l use live view and zoom in on the part of the image l want to focus on. Then focus manually.

Still shooting DX digital and don't plan on going full frame.
