the lights make the pic. good subject and composition of said in frame - I'd like to see a cleaner background though ( the figure in the back is a little distracting to my eye)

Nice clear image

Your photo is nicely colourful and main subject is sharp, but it looks a bit tacky to mee. I know you were going for a Christmas theme here, but the two lights on the left have nothing to do with your main object, so the shape doesn't really stand out here. As for post processing, I would have cloned out the harsh glow on the bottom below the lights. Maybe simpler background would have helped to bring attention to your happy face shape.

Good depth of field here. Somehow this looks like a captured scene from some commercial footage, and not a photo. I am not making an accusation though, just commenting on the look of the photo.

The snowman is cute, the lights are a nice touch, but the hot spot at the bottom and the out-of-focus object in the background detract from the overall effect.
