I really hope this does well. I reshot and wasn't sure this was going to come out well. I am going to predict a 5.5 or a 5.7 but am hoping for something higher... *sigh* I just never know what I could have done till I see what others have done... so sad :(

Oh how lovely! I could totally see this on the front of a Christmas card - with a little bit of lightening of the subject, this would be perfect in my opinion. I don't know how you'd go about selling something to a card company but at least you should make a print because it seems to me to be a very markatable image. I can just smell the pine and cinnamon!

Very pretty image w/ outstanding composition. Interesting to see the light reflections on the glass table in some degree of bokeh blur as the background. (10)

Wow! Beautiful holiday shot! Nice use of DoF. I like how the reflections on the table are blurred just as the background. Nice composition and styling.

With so many christmas photos we can still see some good things! Your bokeh could be better, but i like it anyway.. The object and the reflex at the table were a great choice. Elegant photo.

Those look suspiciously like soap bubbles in that glass! I like the restricted color palette pulling it all together.
