Living the Dream
It has been a really really long time since I was able to shoot this scene with the dreamlights. And in fact the time I did the hub was littered with tons of equipment for the Christmas parade. I really like having the poinsettias in the flower bed to add some nice red color pop in contrast to the castle. I did do one thing different this time around that I hadn’t tried before was I did two brackets of 5 focus stacked. So 5 focused for Partners, and 5 for the castle. This actually made a huge difference in sharpness front to back compared to previous shots where I would focus somewhere in the middle or on the statue only. So it was a little bit of extra work for the final product but I think the gains were well worth it. Enjoy.
