Thank you all for participating in this week's challenge, you all took splendid captures!

I am pressed for time, and don't want to hold out on selecting the winner until later tonight, so I'll be skipping individual critique this time.

Runner-up:

Maureen Souza's "Oh Christmas Tree"--I don't know if that tree naturaly looks that way, or if you did some PP, either way I like it a lot! I like high iso and the holidays, and you used it well. I am, however distracted by the drapes in the background, but at least it's a tidy and neat distraction. Well done!

Winner:

Daniel's "The Cold is Back"--Pure, simple and elegant. Wonderful complimentary background color. Composition is nice and tight, though I would have liked to seen a hair more Dof...just a little. Excellent capture, Daniel.

Once again, you all submitted some very nice shots, thank you.

Daniel, #126 is on you!
