    out of focus
    colour balance is inconsistent.

    as for composition, only the first and last works for me

    Ok, will take note of focus next time. Btw, I was using Manual Focus.. and use a measuring tape (used to tailor cloth) to meansure the tip of the orange to the closest-to-orange lens. Is it correct?

    Colour balance is purposely off, cause they ain't meant to be series. Just wanted to play with colours to create different mood

    I only like pix 1, apart from the focusing and lighting.

    Since it is a nice picture why don't you reshoot it and it will be a keeper.
    Don't forget to post the picture, looking forward.
