    Thanks, Bill. I'm rethinking whether raf may be right, though, that the centre detracts from the image overall. I'm still undecided.

    Clever and colorful subject. My TT.

    I appreciate the detailed comments to know your thoughts. The scratches bothered me, as did the dust on the CD; the maker's mark serial number I found a necessary anchor in reality.
The reality is that from conception to photograph to posting was about 5-10 minutes (you may be able to tell by the exif and timed entry if you can access that as admin); so I thought I'd just leave it be.

    An interesting experiment. The rainbow colours in a semi-defined swirl work well. Less appealing is the intrusion of reality in the shape of the makers marks in the centre and scratches in the bottom right.

It is like two shots then. One which invites us to let our imaginations go, and another that pulls us back and says "It's just some CDs!". So how would I integrate the two? Well the scratches should be easy enough to clone/repair. In the centre I would try some blurring/darkening to lose the letters and some definition whilst keeping the sense of hard edges that would echo the hard edges on the top left and right. Enough definition to contrast with the dreamy colours but enough obscurity to let our imaginations roam.
