Really nice, Frank......deceptive reflection, interesting and pleasing design and colors, a rich and full composition. Very good work!

Interesting! I'd say just spend a little bit more time on the composition. The black negative space and that white spot on the very right are a little distracting.

This is really nice use of DOF. The in focus glasses just jump out at you. I love the colors in this.

Not sure if it's your intention, but they appear to be leaning to one side. I'd have liked them more upright.

I did a shot with these same swizzle sticks for a bokeh challenge this past summer! Good job!
