Blue sphere from a broken Galileo thermometer looks a bit sorry for itself beside other blue spheres on the inside.

Hi Gerard

Cool...looks liquid. :)

I think the composition could be a bit better. There is so much going on on the photo, that it's hard to focus on one thing only. Eliminating some elements, or shooting at a different angle could help. :|

Pretty good. I think a bit more DOF could help...especially for those who don't quite know what they're looking at. Focus on the front 'ball' is good, and I guess that is what you wanted. I guess you used whatever lighting was available, the problem, I find is that it reflects quite a bit off the glass. :(

Awesome. I think you picked out a very interesting subject whose physical properties make it almost liquid like. I love the shapes and sofness of the shot. :)

I would love to have one of these so I could shoot a ton of shots. I think you would be suprised at the potential of this subject...especially using the colors you have chosen for this one.

Interesting idea. Really neat reflections. It is growing on me. Initially scored it a 6, I guess because it didn't greatly interest me, but after looking more closely at the details, I like it more. The reflections off the 19 degrees top is cool! 8 Swash

the title doesn't fit the picture in my mind and the picture is not very interesting.

Better be glad he was left out. He's the only thing in focus. Anything that went in is distorted. Don't ge sad, be glad. Needs more focus. PTL

The hot spots bother me... try less direct lighting next time. This definitely fits into the blue category!
