Thank you all for the kind words. To answer Ryan's question, the lights are a combination of net lights and string lights. Here's a BTS shot:



I've seen how this technique is done a few times elsewhere and it is very effective, and you expertly used it here for a great photo and yes a wonderful christmas card, simple and elegant, but doesnt take away from those who used the whole family or themselves as per the challenge, congratulations nonetheless :O) and truly Merry Christmas :O)

@mike -- it's just subject to background distance. the 50mm 1.4 produces beautiful bokeh anyway, but it's certainly helped a lot by the distance between subject and background.

In the BTS shot, she's closer to the lights than she was when I actually took the image. For the real shot she was slightly passed the halfway point on the other side of the bed -- the side I shot from.
