OCOLOY Day 360: On the Christmas table...

Mrs S likes candles - this is about a quarter of those that lit our Christmas table this lunchtime...

...and may the Christmas child light your life this day.

As usual, the image is SOOC and is part of my ongoing OCOLOY project - you can read more about it in my profile.

This one will view better on black...
Super shot, excellent and protracted lunch, all aspects catered for by R. Sans pareil/peerless!

Beautiful focus on the small flames of all the candles!

Candle lights sets a special mood any time they're lit. This is pretty in B&W. Merry Christmas Day to you and Mrs. S. And Mitzi too!

Great picture - especially the background. Happy christmas to the both (three) of you.

Lovely photo, composition...neat variety of candle holders...Merry Christmas!
December 25th, 2016  
Beautiful photo, good composition.
December 25th, 2016  
Beautifully done. And a discreet candid of Mrs S too into the bargain!

SOOC with candle light is something similar to a double backward flip on the rope without net...
December 25th, 2016  
Forgot to say: perfectly executed!
December 25th, 2016  
Excellent as always
December 25th, 2016  
Fabulous

Beautiful B & W

This is wonderful viewed on black. I love all the different shapes and sizes unified by their flames and glow.
December 26th, 2016  
Lovely light.
December 26th, 2016  
Very beautiful collection. Christmas blessings to you and Mrs. S!
December 26th, 2016  
Lovely on black

Really good in b&w. Inspires me to try the b&w setting on my camera instead of converting afterwards.

@quietpurplehaze Thank you Hazel - I've grown quite addicted to SOOC B&W over the last year. There are two big advantages when you are using a 'mirrorless' camera like your A6000 or RX100 - you see the scene in B&W which helps enormously with the composition, plus it's WYSIWYG; you see in the viewfinder the effects of changing the camera settings and you can keep on adjusting until it looks right... then all you have to do is press the button!

@vignouse

Richard, thank you for tips. I am definitely going to try the bw option in both these cameras (both of which I love). I joined in your SOOC challenge & found it very useful. I'd always rather 'get it right' when I take a shot (if possible!)than post-process. I think both my cameras have more than one bw option.

A beautiful array of candles!

The detail and the light are as if you have them on a palette. I love your art
December 26th, 2016  
beautiful light Richard - and I love the gentle hint of behind
December 26th, 2016  
beautiful! i love the crispness of the contrast here... will you be continuing ocoloy into 2017?
December 26th, 2016  
@northy Thank you Myra - no, I will not be continuing with Ocoloy because I have 11 other cameras that have been gathering dust for the last year and I miss playing with them... I have something else in mind so watch this space!
December 27th, 2016  
terrific and Merry Christmas!
December 27th, 2016  
one camera each month? this is really great on black
December 27th, 2016  
@kali66 Nearly that - but not quite... think PLAY!
December 27th, 2016  
Love this on the black.
December 27th, 2016  
Strength, light and purpose, most fantastic shot. So wonderful on black and then I saw Mrs. S. Great!!!
December 27th, 2016  
Beautifully composed...as always. Just read your note to Myra and am curious about next year's theme.
December 27th, 2016  
@taffy Thank you... and all will be revealed next year ;-))
December 27th, 2016  
Beautifully captured, so easy to overexpose the flames, but you've got them just right here.
December 28th, 2016  
J'aime beaucoup avec cette lumiere et ses contrastes prononcés. Encore une magnifique photo Richard
