The Challenge

(Note: 6 days entries and 6 days voting)

Many people are just putting up the Christmas decorations and getting the tree ready for Santa. Let’s see the beautiful, decorated Christmas trees. This means, with equal importance:

1. a photograph
1. of a decorated Christmas tree
1. preferably in its setting (so wide angles, NOT macros)
1. not just decorations, not just baubles, not just lights, not just Santa
1. not just exterior decorations – those photos not containing a decorated Christmas tree will be rejected. ’Tis the season :-)

Writing allowed for this one – yes, you saw that right (sigh…), I don’t mind if you enter here your brand new Christmas card :) ’Tis the season for buying and sending them!


  1. …nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  2. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you!

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!

Rewards & Prizes

  1. Bragging rights
  2. Banners for top ten photos
  3. Features for the Top 10 and 2 host choices (or as many from the top 10 that are in the group, plus the remaining places as ‘hosts’ choices’).
  4. Top ten will be invited to participate in next month’s Avatar challenge

Additional Information

  1. Please remember this is the photography challenge group :-)
  1. Works not added to the group cannot be featured when they end in the top 10 (‘computer says NO’). Adding to the group once the challenge is over will be too late. Please add your work to the group as you add it to the challenge! :-)
