    TheRubySusan has suggested and others have more or less agreed that a PAD project for December shall be called December Doodads. Take a photo a day (when time allows.....no pressure) and share it in the appropriate days thread. Her description in this thread https://www.photographerslounge.org/showthread.php?t=24075 suggests that the doodads are close-ups. If we stick with alliterations and the letter "D", the old adage suggests "the devil is in the details". So get close to some December-y subjects and show us what you (or your camera) saw. It's still November here, but I'll get a shot tomorrow for sure. Feel free to kick off our new month of photos and join in when you have time.

    Lily has to bear this dressing up each christmas season. She takes it fairly well, but you can read some annoyance in this look.

    Lightroom, I think I love you. My first successful conversion of a NEF file. My immortal subject? A rock in the Illinois River with a mustasche of ice. (Wait a minute. Wasn't I complaining about the cold all last month?) Acutally, our lows today are higher than most of our highs last week. Go figure. 11166695625_8a2bd98ed1_b.jpg

    Love this shot Jules. The color is brilliant, too. I was going to say it's either Canon or Fuji, but I see instead it's the NX100. Did you do much with it in post?

    Thanks! I did apply a LR preset of mine to pull the blacks up a little, but the original shot already had a bit of a muted feel to it which I quite liked. I find that the NX100 sensor can often render this type of look SOOC, which I find quite pleasing.
