I'll offer a prize to the best digital photo of this years Christmas lights posted on Tnet.
(And it shall undoubtedly be something really tacky, like a box of pulltabs!)

Never-the-less, winner will be selected by YOU. Democracy.
Pic must be of a residence. NOT commercial.
Must be taken by a Tnet user or child of user.
Individual efforts... no group things, like at your church, or club.
Yours, your neighbor's, someone in town, or when you travel.
No clips taken from somewhere else.
I'm sure I'll make up some more rules at it goes along! ;D

Here's the first two I took... EZ to beat! Ha! Ha! or should I say, Ho Ho!

I took this one tonight. As I set up the tripod in the vacant lot across the street, the owners came out, got in their car, and drove down the drive. I waited. They stopped at the end of the drive, headlights on, and waited. I waited for them to stop waiting, but they continued to wait, apparently unclear on the concept. Finally, they pulled out of the drive, stopped in the road in front of me, rolled down the window and commented "It's a bit dark to be taking pictures".

I laughingly replied "They look better in the dark"

"Oh, your photographing the lights!"

I silently mused to myself, "What, you did all that work you're surprised anyone noticed?"

WTC, that's outstanding!

I would try the scene modes "fireworks show" and "night landscape". Use a tripod.
