Greetings from the Critique club.

My first visit to the critique club for ages, and I get this. Just my luck. :-)

This is really solid, it portrays your title and is well executed. Execution is excelent with no focus/exposure issues.

From an asthetic point of view the area of light at the bottom of the bottle I think is slightly too hot, and my eyes linger there for too long.

When I first viewed the image I followed the light path down into the bottom of the bottle and totally bypassed the dead flower, missing what I think is the central character.

If that could be slightly darker I think it'd improve the impact of the image slightly.

I'm also feeling that a different crop, or a bit more 'drift' of the soul of the flower to give a slightly more diagonal lead-in to the image might be more compelling, but without seeing it I'm not sure.

Possibly a square crop instead? Same height, pad it out more to the right?

Difficult to find anything else to say about this one.

Nice work.

Nicely conceptualized and executed. The Artist in you might turn you into a Liberal yet, if you're not careful. ;-)

Really interesting concept. I love how the blue swirl looks so melded together.

really cool shot. only thing that bothers me is that the bottle doesn't seem sharp...perhaps it's just the diffuse edges of the light behind it. 7

Not too shabby...well thought out and composed, light and smoke effective. Sharp as a tack, (torch?) light trail well curved and neat and falling away to give dissappearing feel.

I like this a lot, but the flower and bottle seem slightly out of focus

I predict at least a top 10 finish.

While I don't see the blue being your ribbon, I most certainly see a red or yellow. There are only 2 other entries I can see beating this, but this is certainly far better than the rest. I hope you do well...
