What a stunning scene. The tree light line just pulls you straight to that lovely entrance with all the other lighting enhancing the stone work.

Wonderful combination of architectural photography and seasonal festivity. The slight shift to remove total symmetry also is effective.

Wonderfully glittery trees!

@taffy - Ah yes, I wondered if someone would notice that. Symmetry in this case would mislead the eye into a lack if interest. The shot would be too straightforward. Off set it gives the eye a reason to look twice. 'Symmetry' works best when there is actually a-symmetry, but the asymmetrical aspect is not obvious. Looking directly into the arch was a pretty boring shot and VERY symmetrical. So it worked better as taken. Thank you for your useful comment.

Happy New Year to you too, this is very effective in black and white.

I am thinking that a symmetrical composition would also result in a loss of weight and interest given by the trees, since some of them would be lost from the sides of the frame.
I like how this glows. Nights capture in b&w can sometimes look rather stark and uninviting which is definitely not the case here.

@dulciknit - good point about the weight of the trees. You can see more and therefore imply more of them when you see more at an angle. The glows are my fav bit about this shot. The light patches on the walls are so mellow and cool. I really liked those too.
