Entry 13 of 18
A Christmas Story       ©2022 Maike13
Sony DSC-RX100M7       13th place, 41 points
1/100s, f11, ISO 100, 24mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: Straightened; Corrected Lens Distortion; Cloned out a dark spot on the nearer lamp; Adjusted Brightness and Contrast; Downsized       Extra Info: My wife loves this movie. One of the TV stations plays it on a loop for the whole 24 hours of Christmas day. It's one of those movies that you can watch the whole thing or just bits and pieces over and over again. A few years ago one of the local micro breweries brought out this beer featuring a catch phrase from the movie "You'll shoot your eye out" and the fishnet stocking lamp that features in the movie. It's only available at Christmas.

    Belated thanks for all the comments.

babysister: I have to admit that beer is probably not the first thing that would spring to mind on seeing the movie, but the movie definitely springs to mind on seeing these cans.

aoc46: Wish I was that clever :-). I was having problems finding a background I liked so I took a bunch of shots with all sorts of different backgrounds, including some with the cans sitting on our patio furniture table, with one of the chairs behind them. It wasn't until I was looking through the shots that I noticed that the mesh on the chair back and the "net" in the fishnet stockings were almost identical.

Lo: Hope you get a chance to watch it. It's well worth it.

    One of the all-time silliest holiday movie! Great sense of humor by the brewery.

    I watched the trailer for this movie - and I just have to see it!
The brewery has a great sense of humour, and well done to you for commemorating it with this shot. The mesh background is a great touch.

    Nice idea and I actually knew which movie is meant as soon as I saw the picture - ...I should think about this... :D

    Very good photo. Since your wife can watch this movie all day long, it is definitely worth it!

    An interesting choice of foreground and background for the subject. Good choice of subject for the theme. I like the way you have framed the shot.

    Well-composed, well-executed shot. I assume the grating was deliberately intended to reflect the fishnet stocking?

    Nice photo but if it is the version of The Christmas Story" that I know it goes against the mood.
