I needed to get moving on Christmas cards and buying presents... still not got very far... so I raided my nephew's toy box and found my old lego trees. Added some christmas lights, a little flash and the widest aperture possible... et voila!

Ideally, the dof could have been a little greater as clearly the tree isn't all sharp, but this was the best arrangement to retain the circular bokeh of the lights.

Thanks! I've printed this one to make some cards - it looks pretty sharp and the colours are punchy.
