The bokeh is nice. The figure's face could be sharper.

OK - I'm going out on a limb here and letting you know that I initially scored this a '1'. Only fair to let you know why.

First of all I should say that I use the full scale and that I am but one voter with my own expectations and 'luggage'.

I should say that I have a (fairly extreme) prejudice for images of ornaments - particularly figurines, so this was always going to be a hard sell to me.

As you may know, this is my second go at trying to offer a comment on this image. my first comment was over harsh and deserved to be consigned to the bin, so here goes again:

Although I don't have much love for the figurine, the bokeh is particularly well done - it creates a degree of ambiguity in terms of the scale of the figurine. That in itself is worth a bump up the scoring ladder.

Santa's face is out of focus.

It's interesting how the blurred lights have little dots in them, I wonder how that happened.
The subject doesn't seem super well lit. Feels like it's directly light from a window which is causing reflections that make it difficult to see parts (especially the face). Might I suggest trying to diffuse that light.

Nice picture, but I would have liked the focus on Santas face, not his clothes.
