Retake of my Brilliance shot from the invert challenge. Instead of just the one bulb in my original shot, I included its reflection in the mirror (sort of by accident, but I ended up liking it better). Since this was advanced editing, I went straight for the socket to try to pronounce it more, as that was my biggest criticism.

I've decided to go through and give a comment to each user who registered on my birthday (April 6) of this year... perhaps I'll go back to other years as well. Anyway... this is quite interesting... I wonder what it might have looked like with a much more narrow crop on the sides? Very artsy. :-)

Okay, an improvement for sure. Much better contrast and clarity on this shot than the original, spistole. I like the idea of making it a mirror image but there are a few little things that bug me, mostly the line in the middle of the shot, the blue line and spots all over the bulb. If you had cloned those out this would be very good. Also the mirror looks like it was shaking while the shot was being done. Your original shot got a 4 from me, this one gets a 7 for improvement and better quality! Much better! :)

Not bad, but centered and aligned would be better.
Nice and interesting though.

I'm sorry it's hard to find words to describe why I don't like this photo ... I just don't. It looks like a photo of almost nothing or some strange drawing.
