This is a very nice shot. I don't find the bokeh terribly interesting though.

I didn't like the border and the theme is not really interesting! But the colors and the bokeh (which is the most important) are great!

I'm having trouble finding the focal point... but I like the red border with this picture.

Your bokeh is lovely. But, unless taking a portrait, it is rarely a good idea to center your subject. Seating this one on the left would have been a better choice. I don't care for the bright red frame, black or gray would have been a better choice here, IMO. If you had cropped it closer to the left hand side, it would have given the viewer a chance to be led to the ornament by the branch on the right. The snow on the ornament is a bit blown out. Your lighting would have been much more interesting had you taken the brightness down a bit or sped up your shutter when photographing the ornament. This has a lot of potential and shows creativity, which is good. Very nicely focused as well. Good luck! :)

That looks like artificial snow. I'd like this better if the ornament weren't so centered. It's nice and clear with good light. I don't like the border, sorry.

Very nice composition; [border a bit distracts -but I am not taking anything away for that]

I do like this shot but - and I don't normally have a problem with this - the frame is really distracting and unnecessary. The beauty of this shot IMO lies in the subdued grey/brown tones of the background offset by the flash of red in the foreground. The Frame really kills the subtlety I think. Cool shot though.

Great bokeh.

The focus is a little off and the subject a little bland, especially with the spray-on snow.

The red border adds a lot to the image.
