The colors here were immediately attractive and the choice of plant is wonderful. At first I didn't care for the angle but then as I studied it I found it more and more attractive and creative. Just exactly the same reaction one has in looking at art in the museums - when you look long enough to let all of the other images fade away and your focus and concentration becomes more narrowed the beauty of the image emerges. 8

Nice soft colours - would have prefered a larger image and just a bit sharper IMO with the foreground cropped possibly up to the cracked paint area

don't like the crop but otherwise very good

Why are the tops of the bottles cut off? Also photo is a bit to small to really be able to see any detail.

I like the colors a lot. But I think it's cropped a tad too small.

The idea is pretty good. The bootles are cutted, I miss somehow their neck..

I don't really understand why you cropped the tops off. But the lighting is nice, and the bottles make a good subject.

This looks like it could be a very nice shot but it's too small.

Missing the bottle tops, it feels cut off.

A good idea but the cropping and size of the shot hurts the overall shot for me. The tan across the bottom is very distracting and the green bottle is also taking away from the shot for me. Perhaps with just the blue bottle and the plant on a darker background, with a back light? A 3 as is

I would like to see the whole picture

If the bottles are supposed to be the focal point here (which is suggested by the title) you should have at least included the whole objects in the photo rather than cut off the tops ..
The picture is a little too small for my taste
There are just too many subjects here, its poorly arranged
