the face is too small for my taste

I couldn't see you more than 5 seconds. Idea is good, execution is not so good in this photo. I like the background, tree and lights and all. Overall, I am sure you could do much better :/

Decent bokeh but you are too obscure and the ornament is decidedly unattractive.

I had to do a quick search for the name "Michael" to see if I could find a profile image that looked like you. Other than 40 pages of results, nothing!

I would've rathered a more clear ball so that we could see a little more detail of 'you'. BB

This caught my eye because it is quirky in a garishly interesting way. The title does too much explaining for my taste, but I love the smeary bleary colored lights. Thank you for challenging the challenge with something that isn't so straightforward.

good concept. But as a portrait, I barely see you as the subject

This picture kept me involved for a long time. Very creative in the usage of the reflection.

Nice idea for your SP. A tighter crop around the ornament IMO would have helped though. Nice job.
