    Default Xmas Tree in Taka

    Hi, my first try with zoom burst, tried it on a xmas tree in taka,

    was quite excited when i saw the effects it has on the xmas tree lights.

    Please feel free to comment.

    Thanks!

    looks magnificant but otherwise kinda useless. unless ur doing abstract, i would prefer a normal shot

    I like this shot. The framing is very different and its an interesting angle to the same old perhaps over shot xmas tree.

    The highlights in the background are a little distracting, otherwise its good. Might want to try a wider aperature/longer focal length lens to throw the background out of focus so the highlights become less prominent.

    Thanks Ortega, hmm. any suggestions on the composition itself? cuz i cannot really think of any others now besides placing it in the middle..

    Hi Righton, itz from Tele to wide. but i was trying also, so not sure if there are other methods or correct techniques.

    I did something like - Half press to focus, zoom out and press fully

    agreed with ortega. good technique. composition, maybe cropped it all the way down to just the zooming lights and u have an abstract ... can do the same with PS and then u can have layers and even more compositional possibilities.
