The gradual blues in this one really makes it 'pop' for me....not so much the subject but the way it's highlighted by the lighting & background. Bravo & Congrats!

I think this is a lovely shot with nice treatment of the objects. You appear to have taken time also to clean the items which makes this picture really worthwhile!

Nice gradation in lighting. I like how the reflections are very crisp.

I've seen that glass marble before...
Perfect except for the little reflection on left of glass. My top pick for the challenge!

use of a plastic fork and that little marble is a fantastic idea. although the center placement of the glass (and hence beautiful curves) makes the shot static though. still high points in my book.

smoothe as silk...great light...would have left the plastic fork out though 8
