Ohhhhhhhh WOW...this image is just spectacular Bill! I love the light on the doorway that allows for the outline of the tree to show off all its branches..also, that hint of light coming from the horizon is a bit magical. All in all Bill...this image is fabulous!!!

Bill, I save the word "awesome" for photos such as this.
I especially love the subdued lighting on the horizon, which offsets the brightly-lit wreath and windows perfectly.
What a special, beautifully composed image.
May your Christmas be as peaceful as the feeling in this photograph.

Wish this magically lit finalist could've shared your Second Place win with the wonderful "Eye Witness," Bill. After all, they're side-by-side in your gallery ~ couldn't they have put the plaque between them??
Seriously, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! again to you for ALL your finalists, and your win!
