I'd really like to know what was wrong with this image to get 15 votes under 5. When I create an image that I like I'm always happy (and I love this one), but I can't understand what didn't work for so many people. There were no 'merry christmas' or 'happy holidays'? Or what else?

Thanks for the comment :)

I was not focusing on the low votes, I was trying to analyze the voting pattern. When I get so many low votes most of the times the image is not so good in terms of quality or it's DNMC. Assuming that this is not DNMC I thought that people, not seeing something like 'Merry Christmas' or 'Happy holidays' could have penalized the image. Not complaining, just understanding :)

Barefoot in the show, what a brave man! :)
I like the way the color pops against the cloudy background.

Fun! Santa needs to start eating some cookies to get in proper shape. Love how the red pops from the clouds.
