nice composition and colors..and the transformation from white to red realy works here cuase the size of the middell one is biger than the other 2 which makes the impact of the transformation.

Wow! Not much to criticize here. Super focus and composition, and the colors are superb. Perhaps a bit more space on the right side would be better, just to leave room for matting & framing such a wonderful image. Excellent work! A 10 from me.
