Your other option (just read Geoff's comment) is to focus on those water spots - use a bit tighter crop, possibly. I happen to actually like the water spots - gives it character.

Hi from the Critique Club,

First of all, congratulations on your first submission. This image is well lit and has good global contrast. Even in the dark areas, the dark holes of the colander provide nice local contrast.

As was mentioned by other commenters, the water spots are very distracting. Had you cleaned the colander prior to this shot, it would have had a nice, flowing (i.e. continuous) brushed metal look. My eyes are drawn to each of the water spots, and are unable to take in the image as a whole.

Certainly not a bad shot, although I think the water spots probably hurt your vote on more than just three occasions. You certainly have the skills to break five on your second submission, which is quite an accomplishment.

Welcome, and congratulations again on your first challenge entry.

Geoff Ball

I'm guessing the water marks are left on purpose, but for me, they're distracting.

Good sharpness, but the monotony of colour results in a fairly unexciting shot.
