It's a bit dark, but I thought it was a nice idea anyway.

I gave this a 5 while voting. Clearly thought and time was put into the image, but I felt like there were some technical aspects that needed improving.


There were indeed focus problems. My digicam's infamous for not being able to focus in low lighting. I left the front/left bead dark to give the image a little variety. Thanks for your great advice.

Perhaps your entry did a little less than it deserved because cd's have been used a lot in past challenges, and in some minds at least, are approaching cliche status. I would have liked a little crisper focus. The marks on the cd in front of the beads, the red line, the black dot mid left are distracting. I gave it a 5.

I gave your shot an 8 when I voted on it. I love your use of color and light, and I don't mind the red streak off to the right, but the yellowish reflections were a bit distracting. Good job, overall. :)

The first thing I notice that I do not really care for are the red streaks. The composition is a little haphazard with the black areas. As the whole thing has a blue theme going I think it would have been beneficial to keep a consistent (or slightly gradient) blue background. I get the feeling of low light focus problems, probably not helped much by the reflective surface of what I assume is a CD. Along with the red streaks, the light flares on the right are a little distracting. I do like the way the glass beads handle the light, although the front left bead/chip is a little dark and could probably have done with being moved a little so the light could shine through it like the others. I gave this a 5 while voting. Clearly thought and time was put into the image, but I felt like there were some technical aspects that needed improving.
