Well, I guess it is time to wrap this challenge up. I want to thank each of you who contributed. There were some varied interpretations for this image, which is good.

jcomely - A nice submission with increased contract but retaining the branches of the palm trees.

noelcmn - A high contrast version, emphasizing the lights and rendering the shadows to pure black.

tuggie76 - You revealed your secret identity as Santa and allowed us to meet your lovely wife. You did a good job of creating the reflection of yourselves. You also contributed a nicely done realistic version with good balance.

D1N0 - A festive artistic take on the image.

johnhilvert - A high contrast version with a splash of color!

todd - You frequently have an imaginative take on an image and this challenge is no exception. You made sure there was no shortage of lights for the scene!



I must select the next host and I will chose tuggie76 for your edit with the addition of Santa and his helper. You brought the focus to the tree and added to the theme for the season with the addition of Santa and remembered to put in the reflection.





Here was my take on the image:

Thank you very much Glenn, it's not really me and the wife, unfortunately! But a lovely Christmas picture.

I didn't really think it was you, just playing along.

Oops, I forgot to post a link to the next challenge, 281! As I'm away in snowy Manitoba with only my tablet, I don't know how to do that from here, but you can do a search for 281. I'm sure you've all been too busy to worry about it anyway.
