Another Christmas market shot today – from last year this time though – and one of my favourites. I feel that looking through the window at the big display of sweets conveys the excitement of the build-up to Christmas and the reflection of “Weihnachtsmarkt Altstadt” (Christmas Market – Old Town) gives it a real sense of place.

Technical details:
Exposure: ISO 800, 1/320th sec. @f5.6
PS Elements: Straightened and cropped, midtones brightened via levels, contrast and general saturation increased. Sharpened/bordered/framed.
Canon EOS 30 D
Sigma 24 – 70 mm

Camera:Canon EOS 30 d

I clicked on this out of interest as the reflection looked wrong in the thumbnail - full size though its very clever and really sets the scene. lovely work.
