FIRST IMPRESSION: I like that checkerboard pattern visible inside the bubble.

CHALLENGE: If not for the comment, it might have taken me a few minutes to tell that this was glass being blown, although that's just because I haven't seen glass being blown in quite some time. Definitely meets the challenge.

COMPOSITION: Colors are good, clarity is good. I like the darkness behind the glass, although the reflections on the foreground may be a bit strong.

TECHNICAL: Technically a very nice shot of something not seen very often. I like the level of detail visible, and how everything is properly focused.

CONCLUSION: This is a very nice photograph of a trade that has faded from view in recent years. The level of detail and clarity, along with the array of colors show some of the complexity of this art. Aside from the harsh reflections I mentioned earlier, this photograph is quite good.

Thanks for sharing and good luck in future challenges!

Really neat photo. great detail and crystal clear ( no pun intended! ) I'd have left a little more room at the bottom though.

Great reflection in the glass. Seeing the blower on the left add some nice perspective.

This picture is a little on the dark side...but very clear. Also, it seems like the bottom has been cropped a little short. Nice photo.

Ah...you stole my idea (LOL) but I couldn't find a glass blower. Awesome shot. It should place in the top 3! The only detraction for me is the glare on the right hand side.

I really like the reflection in the glass. It makes it look very abstract. Nice focus. I might have brought the bottom edge of the piece of glass into the photo but it is not that problematic. Good job.
