Post-Processing: minor reduction in highlights, cloning to get rid of very bright area, crop, resize       Extra Info: star filter on lens, also shot through a bug screen in this window which i didn't notice until i had my nose on it (think it gave it a softening effect).

    I thought you might use your star filter for this challenge! In fact, I bought one for this challenge because of some of your prior uses of yours! In this case, the starbursts are too numerous and too similar. I found that using them effectively is quite a challenge in itself!

    Almost too many sparkles!

    I am not really a fan of this starburst effect. Not subtle enough, just too much for my liking. Plus the fake snowman is not really an interesting focal point in my opinion.

    Sparkles are way overdone, but somehow adds to the festive mood and I like it. In my TT.

    It certainly sparkles. IMHO, when there are many lights, sparkle filters do not discriminate and thus the effect can be overdone.

    Plenty of sparkle, but maybe too much - Santa should hardly need the services of Rudolph here.
