This was actually taken on the Second Sunday of Advent. I like the fact that one can see the entire sanctuary on the Christmas tree decoration.
Advent is the beginning of the Church Year for most churches in the Western tradition. It begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day, which is the Sunday closest to November 30, and ends on December 24, Christmas Eve. If Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday, the day is counted as the fourth Sunday of Advent, with Christmas Eve proper beginning at sundown. The word Advent means "coming" or "arrival." The focus of the entire season is the celebration of the birth of Jesus the Christ in his First Advent, and the anticipation of the return of Christ the King in his Second Advent. In this double focus on past and future, Advent also symbolizes the spiritual journey of individuals and a congregation, as they affirm that Christ has come, that He is present in the world today, and that He will come again in power. That acknowledgment provides a basis for holy living arising from a profound sense that we live "between the times" and Christians are called to be faithful stewards of what is entrusted to them as Gods people.

Gelişin 3. Pazarı
Bu aslında Gelişin ikinci Pazar günü alınmıştı. Ben bir Noel ağacı dekorasyonunun üzerine tüm mabetin görülebildiğinden hoşlandım.
Geliş Batı geleneğindeki kiliseler için Kilisesi Yılının başlangıcıdır. 30 Kasıma en yakın Pazar günü başlar ve 24 Aralık tarihinde, Noel arifesinde, sona erer. Noel arifesi Pazar gününe düşerse, gün batımında tam Noel arifesinin başlamasıyla birlikte, bütün gün Gelişin dördüncü Pazarı olarak sayılır. Tüm sezonun odak noktası İsa Mesih'in Birinci Gelişinde doğumunu kutlama, ve onun İkinci Gelişinde Hükümdar Mesih olarak dönüşünün beklentisidir. Bu geçmiş ve gelecekte çift odakta, geliş ayrıca bireylerin ve cemaatin, onlar İsa Mesihin gelmiş olduğunu, bugün dünyada mevcut olduğunu, ve onun iktidara tekrar gelecek olduğunu teyit ederek, ruhsal yolculuklarını simgeliyor. O kabul, bizim "zamanlar arasında" yaşadığımızın ve Hıristiyanların Tanrı'nın insanları olarak onlara emanet edilenlerin sadık kâhyaları olmalarının derin duygusundan kaynaklanarak kutsal yaşam için bir temel sağlar.
(Geliş Sezonu: Beklenti ve Umutdan uyarlanmıştır.)

You're capturing well this the decoration for christmas by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the tree to rub, gold ring and the light. It looks like a good tradition for western people.

I think I can understand the idea you meant to show here, maybe you should concetrate on the crystal-ball with some green backdrop.
That's my humble opinion about. Anyway nice try to convey the cheerful holiday's spirit.

Your shot is nice in this festive season. However I'm a little surprised at the quality of the picture given your camera ...
Password happy holidays.

Good to have you next door today. :) This one's really vibrant with greens, and the rainbow effect from the bulb fits in quite nicely. I especially enjoy the random tree lights throughout the frame, giving a touch of additional brightness. Good idea to go with a shallow depth of field too, enhancing the attention of the foreground ornament and the convexed projection of the surroundings. Sometimes is just the little things that hold the most interest. Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Beautiful shot of this Christmas tree.
Your series is capturing the mood of the festive season very well.
Good use of shallow DOF to keep the focus on this shining ball, where you have got a splendid rainbow effect and also the reflections of the room. Good detailing.
Thanks for sharing.
