Such a beautiful image. The subject and background compliment each other perfectly, not only with the color being the same, but also the way that the bokeh circles in the background match the circles on the ornament, *and* the variations in lightness and darkness within both elements. This cohesiveness makes for a very stunning image. To nitpick, I would have prefered even more symmetry to go with the symmetry I have already mentioned: the top of the ornament is not perfectly straight-on (it's a horrible nitpick, really) and I would have enjoyed a square crop for symmetry which would also have gotten rid of the slightly distracting blur on the bottom left of the image. But these, as I said, are nitpicks, which came to mind only because the rest of the image is absolutely perfect.
