Shadow Greens by olivetreeann

Shadow Greens

One of the things I love most about the little Christmas lights which decorate my mantle are the shadows they cast from the greens.
That's so creative! I would have never thought of this!

do you sit and look at them and lose track of time? This is very neat!

@mrssmith Thanks Carla- it's really just a matter of seeing. When I first put them up I don't notice the shadows, but after a few days, I start seeing the effect they have on the room.
@dmariewms Thanks Marie- I only lose track of the time if I'm listening to classical music or talking things over with Jeff while sitting and enjoying the lights and the fire.
@kerristephens Thank you Kerri!
@sarasdadandmom Thank you Terry! (Just added some vibrance to the color and put the mirror frame around it.)

That's fun! It almost looks like a concert with arms flailing all about!

@cdford Thanks Cindy- I thought of the spotlights they flash around the sky at movie premiers and such.

Ann, I love this! It looks like a painting!

Another warm and welcoming shot. Like a small sunrise on the mantle.

Fab processing and love how you created such a cool abstract from lights and shadows.

Neat shadow! There are so many things to love about a christmas tree, big or small~

Cool shadows and colours! :) Looks almost like the set for a shadow-puppet play :)

It makes me feel like seating in front of a nice fire!!!
Great picture Ann!

@karenann Thank you Karenann- It's really just a matter of taking a second look at things sometimes. I'd been looking at the shadows for a few days when I realized how pretty they actually were.
@bkbinthecity Thanks bkb!
@digitalrn Thank you Rick!
@michaelelliott Thank you Michael!
@potsbypam Thank you Pam!
@kloud Thanks Bonnie- that was one of the images I thought of too.
@cimes1 Thank you Carole- it's just the way they hit the wall- I didn't fiddle with it much. I added some vibrance but not the full dose.
@sanera Thanks Samantha- this is my mantle- haven't posted the tree yet. It's hard for me to shoot, but I keep trying!
@alia_801 Thank you Alia! I have one little finger puppet that I got from somewhere- might be fun to see if I can do a little story with him when my granddaughter comes.
@pulguis Thank you Pulguis! The fire is not too far away- just below the mantle and so nice to be in front of as the temperatures get cold at night!

Thank you all for such wonderful comments! You're the best!!!

@geertje Thank you Geertje- I love it at night when the sun goes down and the lights are on. There are pretty shadows all over the place.
