About the Image(s)

Canon EOS R6: 1/60sec at f/8, ISO 2500. Hand held. Canon EF Lens 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM @24 mm

This image was taken, Christmas this year, at East Lake Vilage - Yorbalinda, Orange County, California. One of prominent Community Homes with Christmas decoration. I purposely came to this place for blue hour sun set. Unfortunately, someone was enjoying her time watching the beautiful scenery. I did not feel like to chase her out of my frame. So, I waited for a while but she was still there until the blue hour is almost over. I have no choice and quickly took several shots. Thanks to PS’s Generative fill. It helps me easily remove and add elements as how I want to see. Your comments and suggestions are most welcome.

Wow... You were able to show the 2 small trees that were hidden by that lady! Nicely done.
Beautiful water reflections and details. Interesting for me to see Christmas images without any snow.. although, up here in Southern Ontario, Canada, the snow came a few days after Christmas this year.
Another keeper!   Posted: 02/03/2024 12:26:00

Hi Pierre. Thanks for your comments. May be, California winter is too warm for you. But not for me. Tropical man. I was chilling.   Posted: 02/20/2024 19:29:16

Hi Frans- I love everything about your image: the blue-hour backdrop, the array of Christmas lights reflected in the water, and the branch overhanging the water on the left. You did a great job removing the woman from the pic. No suggestions.   Posted: 02/03/2024 13:52:26

Frans you just keep coming up with great pics and this is another, you have developed the pic to the point where the lighting really makes the scene stand out. Great reflections.   Posted: 02/03/2024 16:00:11
