I had to scale this down a LOT so it wouldn't be as big as people screens..

Love the Chrismas ordainment. I think it'd look better if the lighting was reduced on the background, and had it's main attention added to just the ordainment itself, but still it's a good looking image imo.

Yeah, I tried to make the back a bit darker but I couldn't get it right without it looking akward. So I just didn't worry about it. Haha.

This may sound kind of weird, and perverted, but it's not. If you put a leotard over the lends of your camera/camcorder and record/take a picture it'll give it a soften skin effect, depending on the color, thickness, etc: etc: and you can get some cool, and different effects just by using that.

You should try checking that out sometime too. as the image does look a bit rough, I think making it soft on the background and having the detail on the ordainment would make it look better, although not so much bumping as it as in the picture. Maybe lowered down a bit.

I'm not much into Photography, I'd like to give it a try, but my cell phone camera doesn't cut it.

This looks very nice. The focal being just the ornament would be great. Maybe blur that branch next to it.
Nice work

Good idea. But photo manip. isn't one of my specialties. You could try it if you would like?
