The Nativity and Seasonal Wishes by Bob Culshaw

The Nativity and Seasonal Wishes by 

This is my contribution to the Christmas theme and I take this opportunity of wishing all Red Bubblers, and in particular, all those super people who have supported me with their comments and favouritings since I joined Red Bubble.

I wish you all, and your families, a very special Christmas and a successful, healthy, happy and prosperous 2012.


This is a five frame panorama image of the excellent outdoor Nativity scene at Canterbury Cathedral, Kent, England. Shot in RAW and tonemapped in Photomatix 3.2.6 to create an HDR image, to which I have added textures and other adjustments in CS4. It was stitched in Autopano Pro.
