Merry Christmas       ©2016 kerszkavet
Panasonic DMC-FZ150       1st place, 144 points
1/100s, f4.5, ISO 3200, 69mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Removed noise, increased black point and contrast.
added a layer with a darker exposure and used layer mask so I could replace some of the burnt out highlights
used 'graphic novel' filter which smoothed background and evened tones.
      Extra Info: None

    It must have been wonderful to walk along that street. It's one of the most beautiful Christmas displays I've seen, and you captured it perfectly - the lighting, the composition, and the sheer size of the decorations. Congratulations!

    Thank you everyone for your positive comments.

The lights are on Regent Street in London, which curves just before Piccadilly Circus. will post some more in outtakes.

    Beautifully composed and captured with an ethereal quality that makes this one of my top pics. I would love to know more about the location of this display.

    Beautiful location spotting. Your composition and exposure is really nice contrasting the formal lines of the lit buildings with the flowing decorations.

    Very nicely spotted and shot. IMO, the composition could be made even better by trimming off the bottom (just above the streetlight and below the second angel) and the top (just above the up-stretched hands).

    Great shot; looks like we are being invaded by creatures from another world.
