My number one reason for scoring any photo is interest..does that photo communicate and entertain me enough to make me want to look at it some more.

A good feature of the photo was the backlighting of the fish bowl. I would have given it a 5 or 6 if I didn't sense some color fringing issues around the fish. These may be minor and not noticeable to most but in a shot that doesn't grab my attention I probably nit-pick on small technical stuff. Goes back to personal interest.

I was in the minority but maybe my comments will give you a look at the minority view :-)

I really like this one, although the small water spot near the top of the fishbowl is distracting. Nice offset betta.

I like the simplicity of this

The thing I most like about this picture is the color and the lightning in the bowl... stunning.

Nice composition. I think the light in the bowl is a bit too bright but a nice shot otherwise.

Be careful little fishy...some mice might come along and try to drink your water! The 'dots' (Imperfections in the glass?) are a little distracting and the photo seems tilted ever so slightly to the left. 8

I tried a photo like this, and it just didn't work! I would love to know how you did it.

I like it, but it seems you should have rotate it a bit to have a horizontal water surface.

Very nice! The clearness of the shot makes it memorable (Everybody should now this by now, Always do silhouettes clear) The color is also excellent. Good work! (10)

Nicely done. Too bad you couldn't remove the 2 dots on/in the bowl. Good lighting and subject placement.

I like the reflection in the surface the glass bowl is sitting on. I think this would have been better if the water hadn't been overexposed and blown out. 6
