I think that this would have been more powerful if you would have had the pill(s) with writing on them in focus instead of the plain blue pills...

I like this picture but think it would score higher to me if the bottle in the upper left was cropped out. I believe it would give the pic a better composition. Good work and good luck.

Good idea. I like the composition, color, and the reflective surface that everything is on, but it seems a bit flat. Also, the whites have a pretty strong blue cast to them. Perhaps a different white balance would have helped. Still a 6 from me.

Just my opinion: Move the bottle (top left) OUT of the photo, and pan up and right slightly, to get more of the source bottle in the photo. After, some USM to sharpen the image a bit.

i like the set up but the tablets don't quite seem sharp enough - it might be the texture on the surface of the tablets. Still, it's pretty good
