Greeitings from the critique club :)

Yo buddy, what´s up! I don´t have a whole lot to say about this image so I´ll keep this short. If I had voted I probably would have given this a 6, wich means above average but still not great for me. The image is well taken, well lit, good focus, DOF and sharpness, that part is all good. Bokeh maybe just a tad too busy for my taste, would have wanted it a bit smoother but nothing that is bothering me much.

I think you know why this didn´t score higher, this was done a lot in this challenge and while this is a good photo, it doesn´t really stand out from the rest like for example the red and yellow ribbon photos did that had a similar concept.

Kind regards from Iceland, Lárus.
