Kind of a last minute shot for submission. Taken in a DIY white 'box' by using A4 papers covering up those rings with two table white lamps. Post processing as follows, unsharp mask, brightness, contrast, hue, sharpening and cropping.

Greetings from the Critique Club.

I really like this image - good idea, well executed.

The composition is perfect - the white space around the rings just makes the shot. Simple and effective, with good lighting and a good background. I like the slight blue/greenish tinge, and the level of sharpening seems just right - the shapes are clear, but still have a nice soft focus fitting for the subject.

There seems to be a bit of noise in the lower right corner, maybe running it through Neat Image would have helped?

Anyway, very good image. The only thing is - the topic has a great emotional potential, which I'm not sure this really taps into... It looks perfect and stylised, but maybe a bit cold, I'm not sure anything genuinely draws the viewer into the idea.

That's about all I can think of. PM me if you have any questions.

A lot of extra white space IMHO. Nice technically but no real wow factor.
