Cedar Park Oak Lighting - Christmas 2006
Posted By: Matthew Roberts, 01-14-2007, 05:45 PM

Here's my pictures of the Live Oak tree that the City of Cedar Park, Texas lights up for Christmas:

(Note, all of these pictures were also increased in brightness by 25 and contrast by 5 in PSP XI (except for the last one).)

Taken with a Pentax K100D & SMC DA f/3.5-5.6 18-55mm.

Here's the gallery:

Matthew, these images are amazing. No flooding of the lights, clean and clear. Very artistic in deed!

Would you mind to share your EXIF data ?

Regards

James

Hey Matt,

That brings back some memories. We lived in Buttercup Creek (Lakeline & Cypress Creek) for about 5 years. Where exactly is that?

James, I thought the EXIF was viewable when you clicked the link to go to my gallery, I guess adding borders removed the data. Sorry. Will update in just a sec!

Eric, this is the tree in the middle of this Google Search, in the median of Quest Pkwy. Of course, the map a little outdated, the new Police HQ/Municipal Court at the corner of Quest & Discovery, and they've redone the library, and all of the area across 1431 W. of Discovery is a strip mall centered around the ASTA railyard. And, the area behind that, to New Hope Rd. is the new Cedar Park Town Center development.

amazing ghostly imagery. For a minute there I thought you had some pictures of the 'amoeba' galaxy.

Wow! This is stunning. How did they cover that entire tree with christmas lights? I liked the 5th one and the last one. Wish I could see the chair underneath the tree in the 5th one just a little more.

Absolutely marvelous. That is probably the BEST I've seen. I'm a little late in stating that, the Bench shot stands as one of the favourites.

Thanks for sharing these shots.

FYI use the save as... and you won't loose EXIF - don't use Save for the internet.

Thanks for posting. The bench is the best IMO. They give me some ideas as to what to try myself.

Sorry, gallery messed up. Moved to a different directory, didn't want to change all that BBCode, so I deleted the images, and added a link instead.
