I loved the rough/smooth surface of these indecently expensive, Swedish design glass tealight candleholders. Luckily the shop owner let me borrow them for a day to get my entry done.

Nice shot, love the lighting and the quality of this with the exception of the glare on the object that is overexposed and the upper left corner is very good, good enough for a commercial. 7 from me.

A beautiful piece of still-life, but is it glass?

I guess it must be, or you wouldn't have enetered it. But there's not many "glassy" things going on.

I love the smoothness and shape of the subject. Gray scale looks really good here.

I really like the metallic look you've created with the candle-holders & the background! I think the compo could be a bit more balanced, for example a bit further from the holders away and using the 1/3 rule
