Greetings from the Critique Club!

My first impressions on seeing this are that this is a very interesting and colourful shot. It meets the challenge and the ring of eggs draws the eye around and around looking at the details.

I'm a fan of negative space so the vast emptyness in the middle works for me but it won't for everyone, as some commenters said. The coloured border works too, which they often don't.

The lighting does seem a bit harsh, especially on the bottom-left of the circle. The pastel colours are a good choice but DPC voters tend to like bright colours more.

Overall, a good shot with something difference from the usual. The score reflects that and if you had got the lighting a bit softer I think you'd have got closer to a 6.

Good luck in future challenges. Fell free to PM me if you have any questions.

This is neat... My first reaction was to say that there needed to be something in the center, since everythign else seemed to be leading my eye to the center... but I kind of like just having the black void there. Cool shot, beautiful colors!

Love the bright pastels - a sort of oxymoron that works here. The black hole has depth to it, which is quite a feat!

The eggs look fantastic. I only wish that void had more meaning besides to meet the challenge.

I've seen these wreaths and I think they are adorable! I like this photo although I am wondering if a pastel colour as the background would be better? I don't know for sure because the eggs stand out nicely against the black.
