Sparkle Sparkle Little Light

Christmas Tree 2012
This was my first time at attempting to get the lights on my little Christmas tree to sparkle. I'm going to try doing this with other night shots at some point, and see if I can get the pictures to look great.

I had the lights off (at night) in my apartment, set the camera on f/22 and took the shot. I've tried several shots to see if I could get it to work - some had the light on in the room, some were done when it wasn't totally dark outside (with and without the light on), etc. They were all experimental, but some of them turned out pretty decently.

Overall, I think I will need lots more practice at this, but I did enjoy trying something new!
