greetings from the critique club

My first impression is that it is not bad at all. I like to approach things from two main angles, score and photo quality.

On the score side, I would not use woodies. While some people like them, many voters have had enough of them and will knock you down a point or two for using them.

on the photo quality side I see a few things that could be improved. First is focus. it seems soft overall. the odd lighting may ahve mde it hard to focus. in this case I would use regular lights or a powerfull flashlight to shine on it while you focus then turn it off before you snap the shot. I really like the look of the red inside of the "potion" but not much of a fan of the left over red light on the right. It seems that you used a blue light on the left and I am not sure I would have gone that route. Form your comments some people really liked your lighting so as you can see it is all subjective.

Overall I would ahve to say that I really like the concept and 20 votes of 8 and higher is not bad at all. how this helped if you have any questions let me know.
