    I like that undesired colouration. Great looking image.

    I think the colourization is a plus:-) Good one!

    Good idea. Maybe I would have cropped more off from the unsharp background. In my TT

    Rather fairyland like.

    A most interesting composition. I like the clarity of the paperweight versus the blurred background. Perhaps you should have cloned out the horizontal gray bar at the bottom. It is a bit of a distraction.

    This little microcosm is just beautiful. I love the detail against the blurred background.

    Well-shot - the ball almost looks 3D. As the ball is the most interesting part, consider cropping to emphasize it; the viewer doesn't need to see so much of the background to get the idea.

    Very nice. I love the clouds. Very high in mt tt.

I don't know what the support is but when I tried placing my sphere on wood it started smoking almost immediately and I found that you can get a burnt hand if you let the sun come through whilst holding it. They probably should come with a fire hazard warning.

    Nice Idea, IMO what's in the Sphere is not the surrounding "landscape" so it could have been cropped on both sides.

    Very inventive and well taken.
