The 105 mm macro lens gave me the very shallow depth of field to blur the background close up and yet allow the Christmas light and ornament to remain in focus.

very nice. love the color feel created by the dof. the bulb on the left is a little overpowering to the "main subject" bulb imo. nice work.

You might have gone too far with your shallow depth of field. Almost nothing is in focus. Maybe you got too close for your camera to be able to tocus properly. There are lots of hot spots that could have been toned dow. The upper left ornament is overexposed and therefore overpowering the rest of the image. The image could have done better without the border as it is busy enough by itself.

Very nice. Perfect exposure. Looks like a postcard and fits challenge fairly well.
