    I really like your PP. You have ended up with a nice clean image which emphasises and contrasts light and reflection. And I think the colour you have chosen works really well. You have taken a lot of care in getting the horizontals correct but I find it distracting that the whole structure is off centre (space to the right is less than to the left) and that the candles on the right are leaning compared to the ones on the left. Of course others may not be disturbed by this but I always think that if you are going for symmetry then it has to be exact as any variation really stands out. But I still like the pic. Oh and I would suggest that you clone out the speck on second large ball from the right.

    Hope this helps

    I like it otmar. It has a wonderful softness to it, yet still contrasty. I second the choice of color, as well.

    Otmar. I ditto what Peter said. I think all of his remarks are correct.

    Having said that, I find the image to have an interesting composition and great choice of color. I think I would crop in a little bit closer and eliminate the edge of the shelf or table top, which does not add anything to the image.

    Very pleasing and creative. In addition to all of the other compliments, I have to add that the gradient in the background works really well.
