I like everything about this photo except the layout of the blocks. The blocks individually are very detailed and interesting, but their actual placement is almost boring.

This is in my top three. Beautiful shade of glacial blue and although I know it is salt from the title it reminds me of huge chunks of ice. Very beautiful composition of the salt in the shot, I would love to hear how you did it. 9.

Nicely executed. Well composed and colored. Very sharp. I like it very much and it's among my top picks. I fear many voters won't see granular but I love it!

Nice effect. Looks like rocks at a quarry.

I light how you've lit the subjects, and the cracks and patterns within the crystals are really cool.

I like this shot with crystals on glass...the textures are interesting, lighting is subtle.

I know how hard it is to get any degree of clarity on these tiny crystals. I admire your shot. 10

Woah! Some of you guys really know how to mentally punch someone in the face. LOVE IT! Concept, lighting, colour, all of it. The only 9 I've given so far.

very neat shot but your black ground is wrinkled and that completely distracts me.
