Leovi from La Fotografia Efectista Abstracta
Beautiful vibrant tones, lovely texture and lines. I love how it looks like water. Thank you for sharing Leovi!

I am jealous of the snow! I also love the soft tones, the cute expression and the overall feel of this photo. Thank you for sharing with us Emily!

I am inspired and in awe of the light in this photo. The glow is just stunning and I get the feeling that the girls feel the same way. Thank you for linking up Jennifer!

My photo this week is actually from last week. My last day of work before break is today and I have big plans to catch up on Christmas shopping, relax a bit and of course take pictures :o). Until then, here is a shot of a village we set up for Christmas. I wanted to capture the soft glow. It turned out a bit dark SOOC so I lightened the tones in Lightroom, cropped it and there you have it. 

Settings: ISO 100, 90mm, ss1.0sec, f/4.5 (full manual, on tripod, tungsten wb)
"The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing other's loads and supplanting  empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas." - W.C. Jones
