Still in a Christmas Photo rut?

Ever wonder why your photos of Christmas lights are so lack luster? Most people wait too late to go out photographing or they are afraid to get really wide. The best time to photograph lights (and you literally only have a few minutes to work with here) is that first half hour after the sunsets while there is still a little color left in the sky. Also, when photographing the tree try to get as wide of an angle lens as you can. In this case I used a 10.5mm fish-eye lens.
