Placed on a horizontal mirror held up by a match and blu-tack. Careful positioning of camera to try and improve focus and avoid reflections in the mirror. Finally reduced background saturation.

Greetings from the Critique Club };-)

Initial thoughts
Interesting composition, meets the challenge, could use a bit more interest

Composition/ Content
I realized after reading about how you did this shot how much of a pain it was for the results you recived. When voting on it, I kind of passed over the fact that this disc was sitting up in the air. I like the angle you used and lighting is pretty good for this shot.

The background is clear of any distractions. I wish it was a bit whiter for this shot but that may be tough for the camera limitations you have.

Camera Work - Technical
Focus seems pretty good, make sure you use as much light as possible so that your focus seems even sharper.

Digital Processing - Technical
Nice border and good cropping. It appears you must have used Neat Image as your grain is excellent.

Fits The Challenge
Definitely fits the challenge.

My Opinion On The Photo
I think you probably could have scored higher than you did if there weren't so many floppys and CD type shots this week. I noticed your relatively new to the site and improved from the previous shot. Keep doing that and you will go far. It is amazing how much you can learn here. I go back to my early shots and can't believe how much I've been able to gain in knowledge here. Good job, and keep up the good work.

I would be happy to talk further about this shot if you would like to contact me.
