It is extremely creative, the colours are very clear. It was shown off really well and the end product is very clear and pretty very pretty. A lot of effort has gone in to this and the end product is Amazing! Well done very well done.
To get the location in this must have taken sometime to find, that right angle and all and it is all worth it. The colour dots in the back round are nice and clear or nice and soft and help bring the effect out really well. The sky is also nice how it has very faint colours in it.
Although jars combined with bokeh lights have been around a while, this composition feels refreshing and new in comparison to many other photographs using this motif.
The setup is thought through well (if it was not achieved by trial and error - which does not matter by the way), the lights are far enough in the background to not shine through the glass jar too extremely using a 50mm prime lens at f/1.8 and the dark cloth on which the jar is lying fits very well.
Vision: 5 stars The artist shows a lot of vision in how this photograph is composed, using a wider format than the APS-C sensor's 3:2 aspect ratio which, in my opinion, makes the photo even more interesting (even though I'm usually a fan of the 3:2 format). The lights work well in the center of the horizontal axis. The jar's positioning a little lower improves the image's overall aesthetics by not intruding into the upper third. The focus on the jar's lid-winding bit works extremely well, too even though the "rule of thirds" was broken in this aspect. Additionally, the colorful background (above the lights) feels soothing.
Originality: 3 1/2 stars As mentioned earlier, the motif is not new but the composition redefines the "jar and bokeh" theme and feels revolutionary.
Technique: 4 1/2 stars Wheter this setup was shot using a tripod or by hand does not matter. Using a "fast" prime lens with a high aperture was the right choice as it gives the image a shallow depth-of-field and reduces the focus plane and gives a beautiful bokeh.
Impact: 4 1/2 stars All in all, this photograph really caught my eye and even at "full size" it does not disappoint. In contrary, the longer I look at this picture, the more I fall in love with it.
