Sparkling Christmas Composition

Photo Information
This will be the last in my mini series of Christmas Tree Decoration pictures - too much of a good thing and all that. This one is taken with a different lens - Tele-Takumar 200mm F5.6 Pre-set and a 12mm Extension Tube. The lens is a gem and one that I think will get lots of use when I can get out and about.

13 second exposure, lit only by the Tree Lights.
