    The strongest element is the color and the interaction between the crystal reflections. It feels slightly busy, and I can't decide which glass to focus on.

    Being a black and white guy (with rare exceptions, the images I produce are black and white), I sometimes feel that color can overwhelm an image, or distract from the essential relationships of the shapes. I can't tell if that is happening here, because I am not looking at a black and white version for comparison, but the blue is strikingly predominant in what otherwise are essentially black and white hues. [For what it is worth, if you are interested in black and white conversions, I typically do not convert to black and white with simple desaturation, or convert to grayscale, finding that the images produced in that manner tend to be dull and unsatisfactory. I typically use the Photoshop channel mixer to convert to black and white, but there are other methods as well.]

    Interestingly, I looked again at this photo on my computer monitor at work, which handles the blue color slightly differently than my monitor at home, and I like this photo. I like the blue, with the hint of blue beneath the glasses. That is a risk in sharing photos via internet -- every monitor is calibrated differently. Moreover, some people have monitors that are wider than they are tall, and the web page is stretched, thereby stretching and distorting the photograph you have posted. I was shocked when I saw some of the photos on my website on a monitor at someone else's house, and noticed that my photograph was distorted in this manner. But so were his own, and it did not seem to matter to him -- that, I suppose, is how he is used to viewing photographic images. So, in the end, I don't know, when I post an image to be viewed on someone else's computer, if they will be seeing the image as I intended to show it.

    Strength- color story. Distracting- the composition. Perhaps shooting them from above the cups, would have been a lovely pattern, color story and then if you were lucky- the circles of the stems and feet would have been visible below adding to the concentricity.

    Strength: The color. Distracting: I'd like to see more glasses lined up front and back to repeat the lovely shapes created by the overlap in the middle glasses.

    I love the colors and how the sunlight is being filtered. It is busy, though. Maybe fewer glasses, or a different arrangement or angle, or... But we're not in a studio, and have to accept we can't always get the shot we'd like. :)
