This really has a nice Christmas feel to it Pete, but I'm afraid it might be a little out of focus where it counts...

If there was writing around the bauble this composition would be fine, but I've uploaded a different crop for comparison.

Have to say it was well spotted too!!

Cheers, Goggz

Sure does look like a Christmas decoration from the thumbnail Pete & I really do like's a little oof generally & there are some artifacts/noisy places,especially on the darker greens.A shame TBH as I was looking forward to opening this one up.
Did you crop it lots ?
That said I still think you could mess with this a bit & go all art farty with it...would make a great print if the result was good.
Love the concept.

How lovely, I really can see the similarity to the Christmas bauble, and this would make a very welcome Christmas card too.

Like this Pete, maybe a little soft on the focus for me

Wow an RC and two UAs...thanks for all the comments and mods. Thanks for the critique Janet, I'm not happy about the noise, but I do like the softness, which I think adds to the overall feel for me.

A lovely mood Pete and a beautiful bit of creative photography using the shallow DOF.
Have added a mod where I was having a play; not better but just brainstorming some alternatives with the crop, white balance, lifting the detail a little with a sketch filter and adding a slight vignette
Guess I'll be bold - I like it a lot, and just the way you shot it. Thanks for sharing this .... it's lovely.

Love the festive feel to this, looks like a tiny bottle of beer in the drop.:O) I've tried to reduced the noise and added a subtle blurred texture and a soft bluish gradient, tried to sharpen the drop in my mod Smile

Misty and quiet. A bit like the weather tody - the clear sparkle of the water droplet is just like a jewel. Like the feel of this
