Greetings fromt the Critique Club
Hi again, magnus! :)

Composition
I love the reflection - I see it as the majority of the shot, with the actual glass less a part of it. It is the reflection that's more interesting, but I do like the cup. I wish I could see it with more, just to see if I liked that any better.

Color
I absolutely LOVE the purple that's inside the blue here. The whole color is beautiful. The colors are what attract me to this photo and why I like it.

Focus
I like the focus on this shot and I see you closed the aperature right up to 8, so I'm not sure what else you could have done to increase the sharpness - overall it's pleasant to look at, so I wouldn't change anything here.

Lighting
It's difficult to tell what the light is and where it's coming from. I assume that the light made that reflection and since that's the most interesting part of the shot to me, nice lighting! :)

Subject matter
This is a neutral subject, somewhat of a 'stock' photo. I like that kind of thing. I think that this shot is a show-off shot, one you should be more than proud of.

Overall
Overall, I'm surprised this shot scored lower than I thought it deserved. I gave it a 7 and I thought it was one of the better color shots in the challenge. Congrats on taking an underappreciated shot.

Whoh.. those are some really cool colors, although I can't really tell what's producing them. Neat shot. 7

Very imaginative. It almost works for me. I just can't quite get my eyes around it.

A tad tiled, and the focus seems to be centered at the top, but a slightly greater DOF would have allowed the whole subject (vase?) be in focus and bearing its detail! lovely shot, nonetheless!

Very interesting. I like the focus being on the purple/magenta area of the reflection. What about flipping it upside down or cropping down the top to the front of the glass lip and the bottom up some? May not be able to really tell what it is, but great abstract. Pretty shot

Deep blue! Makes you wonder what is substance and what is reflection - or is it all just pure color? The color looks like it is moving!

very blue but seems out of focus towards the bottom of the picture.

Other than that, nice - have you tried turning it 180 degrees ?

I like the reflection. I would like to see a shot with just the reflection so it's more abstract as to what it is. Nice shot. -danny

Good color and well taken. Looks like its sitting on a cloud or something surreal like that. Nice job
