I challenge you to go out and look around in your community and find some great decorated homes.
Normally it is better to photograph beautiful lit homes after sunset and before total darkness. But sometimes the owners have not turned the light on or you arrive late. I photographed this beautiful home very late but I was able to get some of the leaves back by creating thee bracketed images out of one raw file which I than combines to this final image.
Enjoy and keep on working on your images!
