So what wasI thinking or rather why wasn't I thinking. I saw the "line" and did not think it would cost me a blue! It truly did, this image opened with 8 at 4 votes and dropped to 6 for almost the enire week.
The "line" is in fact the chimney and the shelf the mantelpiece. So stupid of me cause I shot other pictures from a different angle and without the line.
Crying crying crying!

Wish the glasses had a tad more light. Not sure what the line in the backgrond is and its throwing me off just a bit.

Besides for that, it's a great shot!

Very classy shot. I don't like that vertical line in the background, it's super distracting.

Image appears to be cut off to the right of the glasses - otherwise looks like this would have been really nice

nice bokeh, but what is that line? wow ruins the photo, im taping my monitor to make sure its not a error at my end.

i like the concept of the overlapping glasses forming a third glass but it creates an optical allusion that traps my eye in the middle glass, plus wheres the celebration? im seeing some unused empty glasses on a shelf with some fairy lights behind etc for the bokeh effect but im not seeing it and thinking wow yeah lets celebrate.
