I didn’t take that many photos during Christmas. A nice weather and snow were just not there. And over time I learned, that it’s not worth it to go out shooting if I know I wont use the photos in the end. But of course I took few photos here and there and this is one of them. This was taken in the center of Spisska Nova Ves in eastern Slovakia. I was experimenting a little with the composition, as the lights were too far from anything interesting, so I used them to frame the church instead.

This is a manual blend from 3 exposures (took 5, but only needed three) done in Photoshop.
