Nicley composed, but a few distractions that impact my score. The photo appears to have been rotated slightly without being re-cropped (blue background at the bottom of the shot). The background appears to have been overprocessed to the point of becoming a distraction... it seems so unnatural against the sharp lines on the cones in the foreground.

Beautiful shot of the cones; I like the square composition divided diagonally. Looks like a bit of the canvas crept in cropping/rotating; I'd crop tighter to take that off, or apply a few pixel-wide black stroke as a border.

what's the blue line at the bottom?

The third cone being out of focus makes this seem like two and another. It also looks slightly oversharpened.

Good find, though the out of focus cone in the rear is a little disappointing. Color and exposure are right on, and I like the diagonal composition. I'll bet you're kicking yourself over the distracting blue strip at the bottom.

Nice composition, colors seem a bit flat. The blue edge at the bottom is really distracting!

great picture, but what is that odd blue thing at the bottom?

It would appeal more to the theme if all cones were in focus. Pleasing image though.

I'm sure everyone is telling you this, but without that blue line across the bottom, this is a perfect shot. You did a great job with this photo!

Pretty to look at. Would like to see the 3rd cone sharp as well.
