I just happened to be browsing my comments that others found helpful and couldn't help but notice this one again. Was this photo/entry really your work? The title and photo seem so out of place in your portfolio, especially for someone who has earned 5 ribbons! The quality of your other photos are phenomenal but this appears as if it were taken by your son or daughter.

Great title with a shot that isn't immediately apparent what it is but on closer inspection reveals all, with clever use of reflection. Could have done with a slight crop perhaps.

Nice shot but the sTiCkY cApS in your title really peeves me and brings down the level of your work. Hard to take this shot seriously. 6 for the photo, 1 (or zero) for the title >.<

The colors and shapes are interesting, but what is this a picture of? How does it relate to the title and the theme of the challenge? Viewers should not have to guess.
