CC Hello sylandrix, happy Tuesday.

Fits The Challenge-Yes -nice symmetry.
Composition- Nice
Background- Nice, but a bit boring IMHO.
My Opinion- Like a few below I see this as _too_ bright. That would be my thinking for a different colored background. Still I do understand why you chose the white although it doesn't seem to pop! Because this is so centered and shot head on it appears to just sit there. Here I think a mirror would of worked well. Something to jazz it up a bit. Good luck in the next challege.

good balance

Very very harsh light seems blown out which is a shame for this delicate looking music box. I think I'd rather have seen it in softer light and perhaps even softer focus. 6 - floyd

This is a good picture, but just a little bit too over exposed for my tastes.

This is very bright and sort of has flat lighting. The cross seems a little blurry despite the top of it appearing in focus. Doesn't seem to be perfect vertical, but it might be the curves throwing that off too. Hard to tell.

Almost seems a little blured. The 'gems' are hard to see. A different background might have been better.
