Well, this has no relationship to the challenge, but I'm putting it in anyway. It won't score well, though, so no worries. I think it's pretty, so in it goes! Merry Christmas! This is a small glitter-covered christmas tree ball, by the way.

I agree. I like the picture and the pov is great, but the title had me guessing. I scored it pretty high, but I still thought I was missing out on something.

Cool looking details. Unfortunately, my eye is being drawn up the ball, toward the out of focus section. If the further part of the ball was in focus and the foreground blurry, that may have worked better for me. Too bad macros have such a problem with DOF.

Pretty sparkles and bokeh, and nice background color. Doesn't actually look old, but it's pretty.

Very nice abstract - the colors, lighting, and focus are great.

Uncomplicated abstract image. Strong colours, nice and sharp in the focal area and good bokeh in the background. Well composed, the sharp area is roughly a third in from the right. The colour of the background is the only thing that bugs me and is a little distracting. Perhaps a more neutral hue might have worked better

You can't actually see enough of the subject to know what it is without the title. Nice bokeh

Pretty picture, I just wish the concept was more interesting.
