Shot on a table so could have entered either challenge! Minimal editing other than desaturation, contrast, and picking out the red stones in an adjustment layer (the other stones were green!)

I like highlighting the one rock via both color and focus. I think it'd be stronger without the two out of focus colored items.

i'd prefer more red and less reflection, but nice.

While the idea is interesting, I am not sure about the selective coloring. Why choose the three you did? They don't seem to be special. Actually my eye is really drawn to the one right next to the middle red one with the crack. Maybe because the crack and sharpness reaches it's peak there. I think if that wone were red it might have worked better? Still interesting concept.

comments: Nice job at getting up close and personal. I love the small amount of red that helps draw your attention through the image.
