With my new-found photography club, we went to Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh last night. Our bus left around 4:00 PM and by the time we fought through the Friday evening reverse rush hour, we were at the conservatory around 5:30. The bus picked us up around 10:00 PM. Although the traffic was much lighter on the way back, the driver had to make up for it by taking a wrong turn. By the time we got home, it was past midnight and I quickly uploaded this photo in order not to waste my daily quota with a very brief note.
Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is a complex of buildings and grounds set in Schenley Park, Pittsburgh, near the Carnegie Museums in Oakland. It is a City of Pittsburgh historic landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Every year, they display a Winter Light Garden and Flower Show during the holiday season. This year, their Winter Light Garden was between Nov. 29, 2013 and Jan. 12, 2014 in the evenings, 5 11 P.M. According to their website, visitors will [o]pen the doors to a magical world of glass, light and blooms. With glowing evergreens, festive poinsettias, illuminated glass installations and [their] stunning outdoor Winter Light Garden, Phipps will sparkle and shine like never before.
This photo was taken in the Winter Light Garden. I suspect this set of lights might get double mileage during Easter season. What does not show in a single photo is the fact that these lighted spherical objects change color constantly.
Bayram Mevsiminin Son Işıkları
Benim yeni-bulunmuş fotoğrafçılık kulübüm ile dün gece Pittsburghde Phipps Serasına gittik. Otobüsümüz 16:00 civarında kalktı ve biz Cuma akşamı ters-yoğun saati ile mücadele ettikten sonra 5:30 civarında seraya vardık. Otobüs bizi 10:00 civarında aldı. Dönüş trafiğinin çok daha hafif olmasına rağmen, sürücü bir yanlış sapma ile bunu telafi etti. Biz eve geldiğimiz zaman, gece yarısını geçmişti ve ben çabucak çok kısa bir not ile günlük kotamı boşa harcamamak için bu fotoğrafı yükledim.
Phipps Sera ve Botanik Bahçeleri Oaklandda Carnegie Müzeleri yakınında Schenley Park, Pittsburghde kurulmuş bir bina ve saha kompleksidir. Bu bir Pittsburgh Şehri Tarihi Nirengi Noktasıdır ve Tarihi Yerler Ulusal Kayıdında listelenir.
Her yıl, Bayram sezonunda bir Kış Işık Bahçesi ve Çiçek Gösterisi sergilerler. Bu yıl, onların Kış Işık Bahçesi, 29 Kasım 2013 ve 12 Ocak 2014 tarihleri arasında akşamları, 17:00den 23:00e kadardı. Kendi web sitelerine göre, ziyaretçiler cam, ışık ve çiçek büyülü dünyasına kapılarını açacaklar. Parlayan herdemyeşiller, şenlikli atatürkçiçekleri, ışıklı cam bitkiler ve çarpıcı açıkhava Kış Işık Bahçesi ile, Phipps daha önce hiç olmadığı gibi ışıldayacak ve parlayacak.
Bu fotoğraf Kış Işık Bahçesinde alındı. Ben zannediyorum ki bu ışık seti Paskalya sezonunda fazla mesai yapacak. Tek bir fotoğrafta görünmeyen bu ışıklı küresel nesnelerin sürekli renk değiştirmeleridir.

A great idea to shoot before they switched off, as this is a fascinating scene. Such vibrant colors and odd shapes makes this look like it could be an alien planet. Beautifully crisp and clear shot in the dark and a wonderful composition. I like this a lot, thanks for sharing.
All the best

a very attractive picture with brilliant colours that stand out superbly next to each other and against the dark setting. There's a delightful 3D effect and the light is filtred and diffused through the colourful shapes in a mesmerizing way. You've achieved excellent definition and clarity in spite of the challenging lighting demands. I love the colours, the depth and the fact that the setting is comprehensible even in the remote background. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

A fantastic set of illumination, cheerful with the holidays spirit, and vivid with colors.
A night scene well collected, no excessive glare and good depth on view.
Have a nice weekend,

Wonderful fairy tale scene, with some psychedelic touch of these picturesque illuminated objects. I like these chemical colors, good capture, very unusual composition.

An enjoyable presentation. Tfs.

Nice colourful and unique winter night garden, good discovery and good frame to show a beautiful corner from the garden, interesting composition, distinct night photo, well done.

I thought everything in Pittsburgh was only gold and black?? :) (That'd be fine with me though, go Steelers!!)
A funny and informative note to accompany this shot...your long evening at least paid some dividends however, as we get to enjoy this colorful imagery.
A very nice composition you've put together here, a fine collection and presentation of the sizes, shapes and light strands throughout the grounds. These kinds of night lights can be quite tricky to get right, but it appears you've done them proud! A belated Happy New Year, all the best to you and your for 2014.

You're capturing well the place of this winter event by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the colorful glasses(lighted spherical objects) with many kind of shape on the ground and light illumination of backdrop. It lools like a good event in winter for citizen because of giving the warmth to their heart. And, the light projected to the ground draws out an additional good mood.
