Candy Cane

Today the photo-a-day challenge is a candy cane.  I took this photo in manual trying to over-expose it on purpose, but it is still more my style to make it darker than lighter.  So this photo just looks normal to me

When you have so much white in the photo my favorite way to get it dreamy is to use a texture.  Which is what I did here.  The texture is called Urban with an overlay at 56%.  Texture is from Kim Klassen.  So, finally I get the desired look with manual and a texture.  I have been trying to create photos like this for awhile.

I love the simplicity of your photo. It makes me feel peaceful and Christmas. :) I also like the ribbon around the cup. I'll have to look for some like that. And texture is nice. I wish I knew how to do that. Just another thing to "learn" out there. Take care and Merry Christmas!!

Your photo is gorgous. The small branch of holly was a charming touch to your display.

I really like how the photos turned out. I've never used textures in my photos, but I do like how yours turned out so I might have to try it sometime.
