    Taken soon after dawn last weekend as the sun's ray start to burn away the fog and cloud and reveal the festive hoar frosted forest underneath.

    Great shot - not quite sure about the "Festive" mind you.... :)

    Good picture, works for me. Reminds me of something that would be on a xmas card.

    If I shot this I would be delighted. It's a fantastic shot.
    Unfortunately for me it doesn't scream festive season. Still bloody good shot!

    Thank you - seems the festive appeal of this image is not universal!

    Love this shot. Although I'm with SS on this one. It is not a strictly festive scene (this could be January or February as easily as December) and doesn't shout at the theme for me.... more "Winter" :)

    I'm afraid I'm against the grain on this one. I still couldn't decide on the blue so had a play in LR and for me it looks better without and if the bottom matches the rest of the scene. It is a lovely shot, it's just the blue's too distracting for me. Clearly I'm well in the minority though ;)

    Lovely photo in its-elf but not festive at all for me I'm afraid. Gorgeous picture tough!

    A really great shot, but I'm with some of the others regards not really hitting the "festive" theme...
