Photographer's Note

I got my Minolta F100 as a Xmas present.
This photo was taken the day after Xmas, hence one of my first with this camera, on the town hall square in Viseu. They had done a beautifull job of lighting up the trees with thousands of little lamps and it was a real eye-catcher.
I took a total of 3 pictures which I "glued" together in Photoshop 7, as usuasl "by hand" because I still believe that´s the best way of balancing the colours on the different images.
The expositions were achieved without the use of a tripod (I didn´t have one at the time), I simply placed the camera on the edge of a handy nearby balcony and used the timer for extra stillness.
One of the reasons I´m posting this picture is to try the Large Post feature, in TE. Click on the image for a Larger Version!
I´m awaiting your critiques and sugestions.
