We made these at the Sr. Citizen Center this week. We had been studying traditions of Christmas, and to wrap it up, we made a string of Christmas lights. They really don't pass as real, but they are close enough to be cute.

Don't expect it to do well (surprise, surprise), but I kinda liked it.

I think the chocolates cost more than the bulbs these days. Love the electrical tape. They almost look real.

You aren't complaining about receiving cute chocolate, are you? That's completely adorable, and edible, besides. Worth every penny, I'm sure :-)

I'd say that's a heckuva good deal! Edible (and chocolate) trumps bright and shiny!

I think I might like these better than the real thing!

Lighting seems a little harsh. The red background is quite dominating and takes the focus off the lights. The composition is not great either I'm afraid - three of the lights intersect the border. Might have been more effective to have a much lower down viewpoint and have more of a DOF effect going on and having just one of the lights in focus, that would have given you a clear focal point and taken the emphasis off the red surface.

This would be a much more interesting photo if you plugged them in. Come on! Do it, do it, do it! The photo might be improved by using a different angle on the camera, less straight on, and focus on one of the bulbs with the others out of focus.
