Very pleasing image in nice cool colors. Looks like straws in a container with beads?? Not sure how you achieved the lighting effect. Very creative and lovely.

I don't love the background (wish it were all one color - preferably black - but I think the foreground is fascinating with very sharp focus and beautiful lighting.

beautiful colors. would have loved a bit space around the subject. composition is too tight for my taste. doesnt affect my high vote though.

Image seems soft, but the subject is hard to wotk with. Overall, the image does nothing for me.

Light thru straws is always pretty cool. Wrap them up in a bracelet/necklace and voila! Clever use of light and nice creative thinking here. I really like the richness of the top half of this against the black background. The bottom half is "ok" but not as strong IMO. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

I love the centre of this - to my eye the outer ring is a bit too much but very clever and interesting.

Very nice colours, great idea. I think that if you would have cropped it more, in order to have only the pattern of circles, with half circles at the borders, it would look much more interesting. This glass ring, or whatever it is, spoils the abstraction, IMHO.
