Jimmy!! How beautiful and magical! That beautiful star just makes this. Takes it from the extraordinary to a not-to-be-believed-extraordinary :)

Congratulations on such an amazing finish!

Wow, is that a real tree? I live in the tropics so I wouldn't know...
It's absolutely beautiful, and what luck catching that little sparkle. Good luck with it :]

Twinkly. I like the star coning off of the icy branches. That's pretty cool.

Good exposure and that starburst highlight adds a nice touch to this. The only thing I would have liked to see is more separation from the background. Perhaps a lower angle would have fixed that but otherwise a very nice entry. Good luck.
