Thanx for all the comments. This was a last minute entry which I wasn't really going to enter cos I didn't really like it too much. So I was very surprised to see it finishing so far up!

Like this, though I find the framing a bit awkward.

My only 10 this week. Great job! Nice clarity and contrast. You might clone out that one white spot in the upper right after the challenge.

Nice fisheye view refraction in this glass globe. I wish the bubble weren't there. As great as they look reflecting like, they are distracting when bending images. Overall its a pretty good concept and shot though.

Very cool... somewhat of a different take on the Setz and others raindrops. Very well done except for some blotches. What is this that your looking through? Anyway... nicely done.

Excellent! One of my favorites. It baffles me how you pulled it off. Can't wait to read the comments! My only comment is that there appears to be some red, green and blue spots that don't appear to belong in the photo. Good luck in the challenge! 10

Positively wonderful! My favorite so far. I can see this on the wall at an art gallery. You've got such amazing detail, and I love the color you've chosen. This is brilliant work. 10

This image gave me a WOW feeling !! Clear object with reflection of building inside and the drizzle background !! GOOD SHOOT !! What is the circular object? crystal ball? 8

I'm not sure what this is or how you did it, but it's lovely and I gave you a 10.

I would just focus inside the ball and reduce background as much as possible here! 9 from me!

Good job, like the perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i have no idea how you got the image in the sphere so clear. I tried something similar with no luck great shot. I'd have like the whole thing (i.e., not cropped at the top), but that would have been a real feat. I assume the shot in upside down? (since the pic in the sphere should be inverted).

Cool idea for this picture!
