Interesting. The colors don't appeal to me, and the star is hard to see. Nice abstract otherwise.

I would have liked a little more depth of field here, so that the edges of the ornament would have remained sharp. A little more saturation, and a little more contrast would have brought out the color also. As is, the ornament looks a little faded. Like the image was overly brightened, without a corresponding adjustment to the contrast.

I hate it when that happens! But you made good use out of your broken ornament. I hope you didn't sacrifice it for the challenge. Nice idea. It just all looks a little too hazy to me. Maybe it's the ornament or the DOF.

nice details - sad sentiment - i hate when Christmas ornaments break - especially hand made ones from my kids - a bit of the past gone

I like the concept, but there is something about this image which doesn't quite deliver. I can't help thinking 'if only the bauble had been a brighter colour.'

great idea, but i think the colours could have done with a boost

A pretty ornament, took me a few seconds to realize it was broken. Lighting looks a bit flat and dull.
