Christmastime

I took this one night, before Thanksgiving, because I was so excited to see so many Christmas lights, all in one place, for the first time this year! I hesitated to post it, because the photo is so yellow. I massaged it a bit in photoshop, but still didn't like the results... until I drove down that same street again, tonight, and realized that the entire scene really is tinged in a comforting amber glow. I thought about playing with white-balance, filters, and the like... but then realized that I want my photos to portray reality. A beautiful, amazing reality, but reality nonetheless. So enjoy this sunny-yellow, true-to-life christmas scene :)
