A "brilliant" decoration, really. Good shot!

Like stumbling upon Liberace's palace in a jungle, a terrific composition and effective image. Works superbly

@EYES WIDE SHUT: YO! I love your notion. In fact - now I see the candelabra through the window. Is that Cassius Clay, standing by the piano?
p.s. I really like your watermark too.

@Luan: Luan - thank you. I adopted that watermark early in the year and you are the first person to comment on it!
Impressive decoration for this house…

In Germany we sometimes make fun of the american way of xmas decoration. This looks nice, though...

@Mirko Herzner: You'd be surprised, Mirko. There are many old and elegant neighborhoods throughout the U.S. that pride themselves in their lavish and classical Christmas decorations. One of my favorites is in the rural town of Woodland, about 30 km. north of the California Capitol of Sacramento. I hope to get up there this week for some photographs - before they begin to disappear.
A luminous apparition in a curtain of greenery. Magic... as Christmas is...

Such a bright spot in all that greenery! That house was a wonderful find! Excellent shot!
28 Dec 2008 11:56am
wow! Love how you've seen and framed this. The house glows between the greenery!!!

@Marcie: "Glows-R-Us" Thanks, Marcie.
Magical shot! I like the different light temperature between the house and the trees.

@yz: Thank you, YZ - I'll confess to a little Photoshop™ to get this presentable.
wow - those are some lights!! I like the framing of the house in the trees and plants...
28 Dec 2008 1:04pm
Wow, they are devoted Christmas people...It's gorgeous!

@Lorraine: Thanks a lot, Lorraine. I'll refer you to the comment I made to Mirko. You'd be surprised at the number of folks who 'pull out all of the stops' for their decorations. Though their numbers seem to be declining this season.
love how you have framed this through the trees such a beautiful capture, they have sure gone all out decorating there house

Fairytalelike picture. Fine foreground and subject. Well captured.
28 Dec 2008 4:39pm
Beautiful place. I like the composition with the trees framing the house. Now I have the song stuck in my head.....
28 Dec 2008 5:11pm
@willow: OK, willow - I have to ask - - - what song?
That's quite a feel!!! O.K. there's a kind of disharmony between the foreground (disorganized) and the subject (exqusitely decorated), but it's this disharmony that has enhanced the wonderful drama... Enjoy this alot!

@hugo poon: Thank, Hugo - I was traveling with a friend and we were both excited at finding this through the 'jungle'. And he was happy to stand watch for traffic navigating the narrow highway while I set the capture.
That house looks like a palace. Wonderful lightings and wow!

28 Dec 2008 9:54pm
wow, what a great way of framing this wonderful scene!
29 Dec 2008 2:03am
Just beautiful...I love this "through the trees" view.
29 Dec 2008 2:29am
@sherri: Thanks, Sherri - I just grinned when I came upon this scene.
Beautiful. A sparkling jeewel with dreary surroundings.

What a stunner - it's great to see the folk take so much effort to decorate their homes at this time of year. This is amazing.
