Photographer's Note

This shot was inspired by a fellow TrekEarth friend, japiey/Jean Paul.
His unique photo of a Christmas Star, My Guiding Star, reminded me of a photo I took this past Christmas as well.

Hanging from the ceiling in the rose bush room at the Conservatory of Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, were many Moravian Star Lamps that were adorned to celebrate the Christmas season. They were very bright, but I wanted to show the detail more closely. I reduced the brightness of this shot and adjusted the color balance by adding more red and yellow. The result, a similar effect that Jean Paul has given us in his photo. Although, I do not have the beautiful Christmas poem to go with it as he does!

Hope you find this interesting! :o)
