some hue and sat adjustments, and USM pass, and added a border.

I liked the light purple color, and I though that the flow of the image was good.

I gave this a 6 which is my vote for a solid shot. The shot is abstract in nature, which allows it to not have a focal point. The curved geometry is nice.

I think the biggest downside for me was that the purple seemed to be the result of a shift. This is not to say that a shift is bad (clearly I shifted the WB on my own shot), BUT I think the purple looks a bit muddled when you don't have true blacks and whites in the shot. The blacks look real (although I didn't pull it into PS), but you can see the whites have a cast to them. I didn't quite like that, and that's probably what kept it from getting a 7 or 8.

I like the composition of your photograph. However, the colors more likely resemble pink tones. I do not see purple in the subject.

Good texture and perfect focus. I might have punched out the purple a bit more with some saturation tweaking.
