hello and welcome to epz.
im wondering if you intended to visit the critique gallery looking for guidance or if you arrived here by accident, however.
the subject falls a bit between stools for me, its not technically an abstract or a pattern image created by secective framing and its not really a christmas record shot so in a way im left wondering what you want to say with the picture.
also the gold decoration closest to the lens looks a little out of focus and the beads bottom right are in the way, out of focus and burned out.
you could clone over the beads and it would make a big improvement but other than a technical test for close focusing of your camera , im not sure the strength of image subject is enduring enough.
there is another similar shot next to yours and although some of the above issues apply to that one too, that other one is closer to being an abstract concentrating more on the shapes and colour.
It is what it is, and as such, reasonably well recorded. Possibly a little less exposure would help. Ideally you need some strong directional lighting and something within the decoration to act as a strong focal point. Something to give it some impact.
Thanks guys , now looking at it again i can see your point ,it needs that pop of a focal point , and the lighting situaction ..ive just read that if you need to bounce light in small spaces a make up mirror works well.
it says ive got 10 comments , why can i only see 2 ?
