    Garish or no, it's good for a top 5 finish! Love that 1 second exposure! Congratulations!

    Wow! Overdone - not the photo, but the decoration! (actually, I'm just jealous!)
The photo is very well done. I suppose the snowflakes are stationary, since you used a 1-second exposure and I see no evidence of movement. In my favs.

    1 s shutter? this photo is good for last challenge and next one 'best of 2013' too.

    Actually, I find this pretty garish myself - but at least it's festive. It was nice to make use of what I learned in the 1-second challenge, and yes, I did use a tripod. I was shivering too hard to hold a camera steady!

    i love this picture as it allows so much more freedom for the authorities over the Christmas Lights display each year.

    Oh they probably are, they just last all year, not just seasonal. Was this on tripod, for 1 sec it is nice and clear. Beautiful building and shot.

    Really festive shot and you have dealt well with the dynamic range of the image

    Looks a little gawdy and provincial to me; can't imagine the white house decked out like this. But the shot is well taken and you've handled the exposures well despite the challenges with extremes of dynamic range.

    Ha -- a late "1 second exposure" entry! It looks like this building was specially designed for seasonal Xmas lighting, yet it works well for this challenge. Undeniably a flashy, colorful, and bold presentation -- which is exactly why I like it. Composition and sharpness is just right and exposure is as it should be. My #1.
