A nice Christmasy shot.

I like the Week 2. It is almost a black and white, except for the red berries that provide just enough colour to draw the viewer's attention.

Yay! That was the effect I was going for. It is a color picture, but I intentionally played with the contrast to get the darker wood and the brighter snow. I also tweaked the color settings to get the berries to pop a little more.

Apparently I missed the window to edit the opening post, but I wanted to explain that I'm taking a mixed approach to this project because my two big photography goals for the year are to continue to improve the quality of my shots and to learn more about editing and processing those shots to make a better final product. So some pictures will be totally brand new and some will be older shots that I've been practicing my editing/processing skills on.

Week 1 was a new picture shot with my main camera with minimal work other than cropping out the row of dead lights on the tree.

Week 2 was a picture from mid-December that I edited as described above. A black-and-white version can be found in the January B&W challenge.
