It's 6 degrees out and my fingertips are frozen.

Stuck two Canon 430ex's out in a country road aimed at the tree. One pointing up the other slightly more to the trunk. Both at max output. Using my numb fingers, I hit the shutter and the ST-E2 did its job.

My wal*mart special tripod has to go... After trying to paint it with a flood light, the camera was slowly tilting towards the ground. will post outtakes later...

Took this photo with basic editing in mind. Luckily I was able to edit out the hardly visible posted sign and my 430ex.

Very unusual lighting, originality in the photo. I like how there is just enough light to lit the tree. Good Luck.

Great lateral thinking on the lighting. Great effect - almost a negative or infrared feel. 9.
