Santa's Workshop in Estes Park, CO.

Sub 4 score in the early voting. No, there are no little balloons in this scene. But, the santa, sleigh, ribboned package and tree on the left are inflatable balloons. Not obvious on a quick look. But, these are "balloons", nevertheless.

Yes, the metal pole in the middle is a distraction. In my opinion, it would violate editing rules to clone out such a significant item.

Grossly underrated. This image while quite busy still flows really well and my eyes follow a nice line throughout the frame. Perfect exposure and quite an interesting piece.

That background well within your chosen DOF just doesn't help the image out at all.

Seems like the holiday lights are more the subject of this than the inflatable balloon at left.

This was shot at a good time of the evening twilight. It allowed the lights to be seen as well as some of the details of the house and property. THe scene is pretty cluttered, especially with the big pole in the middle. My 5 vote represents what I feel is a poor composition but recognizes good camera work in regard to the exposure and time of day to shoot the lights in.
