Greetings from the Critique Club

What a super image. You wanted to try something different and you succeeded. I know, I know, the scoring didn't reflect what you accomplished, but sometimes that happens.

The balance is just fine here, the branch and the wine glass work well together; um, maybe the red is a bit much... but still, it's a fine idea and one that should have scored higher.

Keep up the good work.

My favorite submission, although I don't like the green! Red, white and the branch would be perfect.

Next time iron the red side! :-) What's with the branch? Did a tree fall down and land on the table? The two unrelated items are depicting symmetry. I like the concept - but perhaps if you used two items that were related, it may be more pleasing to the eye.

I really like this image. It is visually interesting, with some really neat effects from the glass and the shadows, and nice textures throughout. It is well shot (exposure, sharpness, etc.) to bring it together. It's a bit different, so I hope you're not getting low marks, but I really do like it.

I do like the addition of the branch. I find the green I see everywhere very annoying (was the 'floor' green? You can even see it in the center of the wine glass. -6-
