I started to work on this. First of all I straightened the photo up and cropped it (in Microsoft Office Picture Manager - where I usually open my photos from my hard disk).
I then put the photo in CS3 and cloned out the TV reflection in the window replacing it more or less with the normal structure of the blinds. I then went into Piknik, did a monochrome but kept the little bit of red of the Poinsettia in the middle at the bottom. I then did a Piknik frame and here is the result.
I then searched for a frame in Piknik. I decided on a Christmas frame, but the holly and snow flakes were getting a bit boring. I then found the frame with the Christmas lights. This really suited me as you can also incorporate the coloured light reflection of the lights. Here is my boring picture, with a bit of colour. I sometimes do wish that Ansel Adams was my grandfather.
