Christmas Scene

https://greatrivers.smugmug.com/Galleries/Missouri-Botanical-Garden/i-gshRcLf/A

This is one of my favorite Christmas Photos. However I would not have found it if I did not follow one of the most important photography tips I have heard. That is, once you have found a good subject, take some time to study it and walk around it to find the best angle for a photo. The subject here was really a Gatekeeper’s House on the grounds of the Missouri Botanical Garden (see previous post). The house was nicely decorated for their Garden Glow event and when I walked around to the side of the house and looked into a doorway, I found this scene! To get this photo, I used a tripod set to a lower height and captured it as three shot HDR to make sure there were no shadows in the room. Everything processed in Lightroom and Photomatix.
