        'Tis the season of everything festive and beautiful! Yesterday, I saw The Nutcracker performed by high schoolers of New Canaan. It was absolutely spectacular! I used my 18-135mm f/3.5 to shoot because I was some distance away from the stage. The above image is one of favs from the show. I edited the still in LR to add more of a snowy-night feel. I increased the blacks and shadows, and played around with RGB curves until I had the right amount of contrast between the ballerinas and background. Here's a before and after.

        Here are some additional shots from the performance. To view more, click here.
