Interesting. I like the simplicity. Would look great as a monochrome.

Great shot. It seems a tad soft to me though...not sure if that's just the resizing or if you could have benefitted from a deeper DOF

Seeing the lights in the bottles makes me curious how you pulled it off. Hopefully you have a nice description after rollover :)

Don't know whats in the beaker, but its an interesting shot, I like the simplicity of the shot. I wish is was lighted from the back to get a perfect white background and better outlines of the beaker! 6

Ok, this is cool, very simple but effective. The focus looks a little soft (could just be my old eyes)and I think see a few dust bunnies, but I still like it tons.

A little flat, I can see where you were going, but I'd like to see a bit more punch.

A bit wonky.

An alternative backing colour may have improved this.

I like the light, but a closeup/crop just showing the bulb with whatever is in it would greatly enhance the picture.
