The Beauty of Polish Christmas Ornaments

Just trying some very low light shots of the wonderful ornaments I bought in Kraków. I had to use an extreme EV in most of these to boost the shutter speed as anything below 1/80 of a second with this lens, at least for me, is pretty unusable. It's turning out to be a challenge to photograph these ornaments, so good practice for me and the D800.

I've collected Polish Christmas ornaments for quite a long time, but they're hard to find in the States (although Nordstrom carries some). The Grand Market here also has a shop specializing in Polish ornaments, and they're nice, but nothing compared to what I found in Kraków, where they are made and also less expensive. I walked into a store there that had only Christmas ornaments and was in heaven (and brought a lot of them home to Budapest).

Most of the ones pictured here have Swarovski crystals enhancing the decoration.
