Photo taken in the house of a friend. She put these plants in bottles in the window just for decoration.
I guess some of you would like to see the photo cropped much more (especially to remove the window frame on the right). However, I thought I'd keep the bottles in the context I found them in, which is inside somebody's house.
I saw that there was some discussion on the forum around this recently, and the point was raised that some of the photos on TE doesn't really tell you something about the world. Well, now you at least know that there are really cool people in South Africa who are very original and artistic when it comes to interior decorating... :-)

Simple composition yet engaging. I have to look at each bottle as they look different. Smart idea. Apart from the colours, what makes this picture good (for me) are the symbolisms that this creates. Society? Uniqueness? Self-concept? Peer Pressure?

Those blue bottles look great against the window – great blue tones. I also like the silhouettes of the plants – they make the image more interesting. I find that vertical part of the window(?) a bit distracting. I posted a WS with tighter cropping... Still, well seen and captured.

Wonderful and original. This blue color is wonderful and I like the way some of the bottles are not strait. It's a kind of happy photo. Well done.

J'aime beaucoup ces bouteilles bleues, le contraste avec le vert et blanc du fond est magnifique. Bravo, c'est une belle réussite.

The blues are magic, the tonal differencs great. I see the D100 works - keep it up!

I like this shot Henry, even if it's not of motocycles ;-)
I agree with you about the frame, it has to stay in. It's a very interesting way to decorate and you have done a good photo that you could decorate with... Decoration with decoration.

great, sharp photo. The blue is beautiful. So are the details of the plants. Simple subject, but great result.
