Very good exposure. Positioning of the lights in the composition makes it very interesting. Love the sparkling yellows. Almost giving a vertigo effect. Very nice.

This must be a very tall christmas tree ... maybe little to tacky ... this photo would get high score there.

Great angle! Glad you described it in the title, not sure I would have gotten it otherwise.

This is amazing! The spiral pattern created by the lights is awesome. I can see this one getting a ribbon for sure! 10
