Great collection. interesting shapes, textures and colors, pinks, oranges beiges and blues. If you have time to play, maybe simplify the number of colors, to provide a more unified feel.

These imagages are very hard to pull off because of the complex positioning which have a tendency to appear cluttered. However, you did it and with good style. The image is certainly an eye pleaser. Congratulations on your top ten finish.

Great framing and composition.

The lighting is excellent perhaps with a tiny bit of blowout in just one spot in the middle bottom...

Very nice pic!
