This is a nice abstract. I am immediately drawn to the unusual camera angle used. I feel this angle works well as to give the image a more unique quality. The two elements of this shot that may have been tweaked are the oversaturation of the reflected light and the background being light enough to make out the edge of the container. I think the grey isn't bad, just that if it were a true black it might lend itself to better contrast to the thermometer. The hotspot in the blue object seems to overwhelm the picture making the 'glare' the main focal point. This keeps the eye from flowing up to the other one.

Your post processing seems good, no jpeg artifacts or other issues other then your image is only 467 pixels on its longest side. Using the full 640 would help us make out more detail.

This is a nice shot. I wouldn't mind seeing it used again with some new angles and backgrounds.

Nice color to these items, good reflections of light off them. I'm curious as to what they are, can't figure that out just yet. Good lighting and focus.

Good composition and lighting.

A Galileo thermometer? Good idea, but it's a little hard to tell what it is. Needs a less severe crop, perhaps? And perhaps a little less harsh lighting. The composition does give the sensation of dynamism (falling) though.
