Positives:
Abstracts are always difficult to interpret but the bubble at the top is this image's most attractive and distinctive feature.

Technicals:
Image appears excessively red. Depth of field and/or shutter speed contributed to the poor focus of the bottom bubbles.

The Challenge:
Your image scored below the DPC average. To be honest, setup played little role in that which is what bothered you most. Mostly it is likely that voters felt that the red in this image added little impact to the composition and/or or was added in post... either would be a killer in voting.

Most likely voters felt you added red in post processing to meet the challenge and voted you low because of that and its technicals.

Suggestions:
Shot at 1/250th sec af f/8. Think it might be more effective if the bottom were all totally focused and that would better support the overall effect of this image. You can only do that by either increasing shutter speed or depth of field. Either will require more light or higher ISO. You should ALWAYS favor more light over ISO to reduce noise effects.
