    I did not take a decent picture at the meeting today, but here is one from my home studio, showing what can be done with a basic image and some editing in photoshop

    Experimenting with Christmas ornaments in front of the Christmas tree.

    Here is take 2. I did not like the subdued colour of the little blue jay, and decided to light the subject better while diminishing the background bokeh. I like take 2 better.
