Pretty beautiful for garbage, curve and reflection is somewhat reminiscent of a sea shell.

A nice macro, well lit. If I had to nit-pick, I'd point out that there are what appears to be a few dust spots on your sensor.

pretty shot. like the reflection as an idea for presenting the skin, and i like the lighting and background color.

6 - Good idea. Criticism; difficult, but perhaps a little more defintion and 'contrast'. Some 'minor dust', etc visible, but otherwise a good concept. Perhaps, in this instance, some type of frame might have helped, possibly even a different colored background, although not sure on that.

I really like this, the light shining through the peel really shows off the texture. I cant tell but it looks like the focus is a little off. I cant really tell so it didnt effect your score. Great shot

This was a really great reflection. I loved the blue background and its contrast to the onion skin. Lighting was very good as well. 10
