Looking at my top vote-getters and am sorry to see this placed lower than I expected. My guess is you were hurt by the "glasses on bible" subject, since it is so common. However, I thought your execution was very fine.

Wonderful detail, the slight angle of the glasses really adds to the photo

Very clear and good DOF. B&W was an obvious/good choice I think.

I like how the glasses are blurry when you look through them from the otherside. The shape in this photo is great.
