I have some halogen lights for the yard (See below). I bought some transparency paper and was going to print a page of blue and use that as a filter over the lights. I was browsing through some of your photo albums and saw that some of you use green. I'd just like to get an idea on preferences and any pros/cons that you can think of.

Thanks.

I tend to go with blue or purple when i can. Red if the subject calls for it. I am not a big fan of green for no real reason other then I think it is over done most of the time. Just enough light to do the job and no more. I think less is better, it lets the shadows work thier magic.

Gus, Where's you get those lights, and how much?
Did you try the transarency? How did it work? How does it work compared to 100W spotlights?

The lights came from Home Depot's garden center. I can't remember the cost. I bought the original set a few years ago. The cool thing is that they give you a long cable and you can plug the lights in wherever you need them. You can also add lights.

I have the transparencies in right now. They look good, but I don't know how they will hold up with continued exposure to the heat. I am assuming since they are intended for overhead projectors which have pretty intense lamps that they will be fine. If not, the smoke from the melting plastic will add a cool affect. I don't know how they work compared to 100w spots because I have never used them. These are much smaller and offer more direct lighting. I may need to add a few more here and there to get the look I want. I will post photos when I get them. Right now I'm still focusing on the garage.
