Hi, I am Kari and am fairly new to the critique club.
What a amazing picture you have taken.
Great to do a critique on your image but it is difficult if you don't give us more information in your photographers comments. When we do a critique, we go past just the photographic result, that's what voters comments do. The critique looks at what you were trying to achieve, how you wanted it to look and what issues you had in getting the image captured and ready for voting. So a few more details helps.
First Impression - the most important one:
I think that this is a great picture, it creates interest, and from the voters comments has creeped out a few people (hehehe) I don't know if that was your intention but I think that is kinda cool.
Reading through what has been said and also taking into account some additional factors like that they are frosted balls and not shiny I think that you have done a great job. The use of cotton wool to hold the balls, and the sharpness of the hangers is really good.
This truely does meet the challenge and you have a received a lot of comments with it.
Technical (Colour and light):
I love that the colours are so deep and luscious. I think that if you were not trying to freak people out some different angles for the lighting may reduce that impression, but the current lighting gives a good pattern which only adds to this as a challenge contender.
To grow its vote?:
It is a great shot, to increase the score I would look at the lighting angles, maybe even try this with the shiny rather than frosted balls.
The picture is cool, it works on so many different levels.
If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via the PM system.
Congratulations and well done.
