Another wonderful thing about being with my family for Thanksgiving was their proximity of Opryland Hotel. This time of year Opryland Hotel is dressed beautifully with lights, trees, and a life size nativity scene (of which I will be sharing more over the next few weeks).
For now, I will share some of the bokeh light shots I took. For those of you reading my blog that have no idea what bokeh is, it is "aesthetic quality of out-of-focus areas of a photographic image."
In this above image, the bokeh lights are those in the background that appear to be fuzzy, little blobs of light. If you want to see more elaborate examples head over to My 3 Boybarians for the Second Annual Holiday Bokeh party.
There are thousands of lights hanging from the ceiling throughout a room filled with palms trees, restaurants, shops, a canal, and rooms with adjacent balconies. It is a magical place. I will share more of the decorations in future posts, as well.
Now, to leave you with a shot that has nothing to do with bokeh and a lot to do with the reason for the season. May you be filled with the joy of Christ this season and forever.
I shared the above photo on Monday for Good to Wow. I did very little to the original. In ACR, I adjusted white balance, increased exposure +1, increased fill light +17, and decreased contrast slightly. Then, I opened in PSE and applied Ashley's Nice and Easy action adjusting the layers to taste. Rounded corners, resized and sharpened for web.
