Christmas Tree Bokeh by SnapShot120 Christmas Tree Bokeh by SnapShot120
Download for full size! :D

I took this at Thanksgiving at my aunt's. She's into getting the Christmas tree out early. Or maybe it's just so everyone can look at it and marvel in its beauty during Thanksgiving as well as on Christmas Day. Oh well, whatever the reason, she sure likes to decorate. She has about 3 other Christmas trees in her house.

Anyway, I'm submitting this to #Abstract-and-Surreal's December Contest. It's about "abstract Christmas colours" as it said. The challenge was to "include one, some or all of the following colours and needs to be Abstract in style." The colors are green, red, gold and silver. I had this picture and it worked out nice for the gold color. I'm pleased with it. :) Hope you like it too! :P

When I first submitted this, it expired, so it wasn't included in the folder. But I saw a journal entry that said that the contributors were busy so I thought it was okay to submit again. So I did. And now, a few days later, I won! I'm so glad I resubmitted it!

A beautifully delicate abstraction with a nice variety of tones and good focus, or lack thereof. Fine work, and congratulations on your contest success!

I worried about the bluish are on the bottom half of the tree, whether to try to take it out or not.

Nope, leave it there; it contrasts well against the red to the top left of the scene. It helps round out the colour balance, I feel. It does make the piece a little less 'seasonal' but it makes it a better composition. :]
