Christmas eve dinner in Fort Kochi, Kerala, India. Nice food, nice people, beautiful place but without Christmas tree (not easy to get one in tropical Kerala).
I've used my Sigma 10-20mm lens at 10mm.

looks like you had great Christmas time in India.Certainly much better weather than we have in Europe(especially in Germany or you in Switzerland:)
Wide-angle lens definitelay helped you to create so eye-catching perspective of the courtyard area.Also outstanding quality of the image is worth mention.

Looks like you enjoyed your Christmas stay in India a few years back!! Nice view of the party going on. I like the tiles on the bottom of the pool they present good contrast with the surroundings. Well chosen POV and good perspective. You have captured the good times well through your lens. Very well done and thanks for sharing.

C'est le temps des célébrations et rien de mieux que de les passer sur les bords de la piscine dans un pays chaud. Ta photo d'ambiance est très réussie.

Très agréable terrasse extérieur de hôtel près de la piscine, l'ambiance festive est bien représenter, prise des lumières et les touches de couleurs des ballons

This looks like you had a great time during Christmas two years ago. It's a well composed photo with very well handled light and good colours. It shows a very different part of Fort Kochi than my latest photo, which I posted yesterday. like from another world ;-).

the colors of the pool and the dark night created a marvelous contrast. I liked the other many details like the old white arches and personages. TFS.

A very nice and unusual image of Christmas, how great to see how it is celebrated in a far away place like this. I imagine it is hard to find Christmas trees, but strangely this year I have actually used a Christmas Bonsai tree instead of the traditional pine :) I love that you gave so much of the foreground to the vivid blue pool here.
Many thanks as always

This reminds me of the poolside dinners that the Hilton used to organize in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, UAE. They used to have ice sculpture, too, imagine ice sculpture at 85-degree (Fahrenheit, = 30-degree Celsius) nights.
Happy New year,

Gee you get around the world, you must have been a gypsy in a past life :) This is a very elegant and pretty hotel. The wide angle lens has worked well and I like the sharpness and definition despite the night.
Happy New Year dear friend, to you and your family

Miro, good view of Christmas dinner in Kerala, many people are Christian in that state so it's the custom, beautiful reception with a buffet, kids and parents sitting on tables, a positive atmosphere, all the best, have a nice evening
