Hello from the Critique Club.
This is a good, well composed and interesting photo. To me, the image conveys a great sense of captured motion and feels like it's vibrating with energy. I especially enjoy the interaction between the subject and background elements and the play of color between the two.

Some suggestions:
Your comment says a lot. This image is good, but it could have been great with a few minor adjustments. Minor contrast, perhaps a boost to saturation. Maybe a little coarse sharpening to really bring out the lines orbiting inside the ball.

I think the lighting is a bit off, but I have no idea how you would fix it. I like the specular highlights, but they draw your eye to what looks like a window and a mirror reflecting daylight onto the subject. Not terrible, but I realized that I was trying to figure out what I was seeing in the reflections rather than getting lost in the photo. One of the highlights seems to be a different color than the rest, possibly from an incandescent lamp. I probably would have re-colored it to match the other highlights or simply cloned it out.

Final thoughts:
I like this image, but feel that the lack of post-processing is keeping it from having the impact it could have had.

Feel free to critique my critique,

nice, it needs a bit more contrast to give it some umph.

Very nicely done. Your rainbow of colors is dynamic. I'd like to remove the two bright white spots - on on the left front of the ball and the other behind the left side. Overall an excellent entry.
