My Grandson's Christmas Tree       ©2020 jomari
Panasonic DMC-FZ70       3rd place, 121 points
1/2s, f5.4, ISO 1250, 151mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Topaz Glow, blend mode lighten, Topaz Clean, Filter Forge > artistic, Topaz clarity. Another version Filter Forge >
distortion glow pasted and blended so that it softened the first version.
      Extra Info: I shouldn't give our grandson all the credit. He and his fiancee hosted Christmas dinner and this was their tree - or part thereof. It was our grandson who proudly made sure we noticed it! It was actually a black tree but the lights made it look blue.

    My #1 pick. Glad to see another Topaz user. I've been wasting too much time with the new Studio2 and Gigapixel :-)

    Thank you all for comments and votes. The original of this was disappointing in its lack of crisp focus. Not having much else to offer I played around with it a fair bit (see post-processing notes).

    A black tree? I'd have thought it might be a Blue Spruce. ;-)

    I'm curious as to how you achieved this abstract effect. It's really quite beautiful.

    The blue gives this an almost abstract look which is very attractive.

    A really cool effect! Hope you explain how this was achieved in Outtakes. I wonder if the effect caused this to lose the Christmas look?

    A trippy psychedelic Christmas tree!

    This image has an abstract feel to it. Very well done and different from the usual images.
