Good concept, great execution. Best message-in-a-bottle photograph in this challenge. Should place in the top 10.

Excellent focus. However, the reflection near the neck of the bottle really ruins this shot.

Two types of entries dominate this challenge: Cans connected by string and messages in bottles. This is by far the best message in a bottle entry, and nearly my favorite entry in this challenge. Great work!

The best by far of the the 'message in a bottle' shots. Reading the paper with lines like 'hopes and dreams' and timeless, sweet, flowers... doesnt sound like a distress message, which is the only reason I can think of to communicate by bottle. Other than that, perfect. 8

I like this shot a lot. Great depth of field and (lack of) coloring

Great shot, I think the monotone really works for this image.
