Great lighting, it really sets the mood well. And pleasing composition. Nice work.

Good idea, well composed. To improve on it, I'd suggest a larger format to make the list more readable. Also, the white balance could be adjusted to lessen the yellow cast.

Nice saturation of colors. Soft focus, but along with the warm lighting gives this a characteristic mood. Overall a good entry.

The challenge allows you to make use of 640 pixel dimensions...gives the image more visual impact to make full use of the allowance.

Nice, and you should get the 'Chirstmas Spirit' vote. Too, bad I'm a Scrooge. =-)

Ah, the reflection of the light and your title allow me to ponder the flipside of Santa. That threatening list... Nice use of golds and yellows to create a Christmassy feel. Great framing and use of light. Captivating, thought-provoking image. Nicely done. I feel a creative mind with a bit of an edge at work here. I have to admit, I like it.

I like the warmth you've created in this picture. I can just image being that age and making my list! Great capture

I love this photo. The number one authority being Santa ;) Like the lighting how with the low light you still can see the Christmas Red. The light heartedness does it for me too. You get a 10 from me!

clever take. wish the focus was a little less soft. good job with the lighting. hope this does well for you.

[as an aside, you might want to submit your entries slightly larger; you can go up to 640 pixles on the longest side.]

neat idea, but a bit too small. should be around 600 on the long side.
