New Year's Dinner


My sister and her beau came over on New Years Day and we went out to dinner. The flash did not fire on my little point-and-shoot camera, and as you can see, the lights gave off green and yellow tints. 

I changed one image to black and white in Photoshop. Then I saw  the single picture that Bill took (shown below) and the colors look great! Sometimes a flash is better than ambient light.

In any case, we had a nice visit. The best thing about the holidays is getting together with special people.

I try not to use flash, makes the background flare too much

I never have much success with indoor photography and the flash always results in harsh tones. I like the b&w image. Glad you had fun time with loved ones.

Nothing like starting a new year out with good friends and family. I enjoyed looking back thru your blog at the many picture of your beautiful valley. Wonderful.....:)

Time with family is indeed the best part about the holidays. Nice photos.

The first photo is much better in colors and everything than the last one, to my mind :)

I'm still experimenting with indoor pics here and there. Sometimes it requires second shots.

Or third shots.

Or seventh shots.

These are good ones!
