There are several spectacularly decorated homes in or near our neighborhood. Of course I just had to put one with a really great front porch as my first shot.
I read someplace that the best way to photograph Christmas lights is to do it when there is still some light. That way there is still some ambient light to work with and he makes the Christmas lights stand out. This is actually the last one I took tonight trying this out. I will share some later this week that were taken earlier in the evening.
