Interesting gray-white-and black background combination of just a few colors. Fishes represented in a vivid way. It was your choice to represent this medallion to the lower right corner of the image.
Looks like carp. Could also be drawn or painted. With charcoal or white and gray pastel char, or even acrylic.

I think this is a lovely medallion, and it for sure looks like a moon with fish swimming inside. It has such delicate blue hues that I almost wish you had picked another color but black for the background. Using some of the hues of the medallion would probably have worked better, but this is of course just a personal preference.

Your photo is nice and sharp and still it has maintained a lovely softness. I also think the exposure is perfect.

Again it is a personal preference, but I think this would have been a better image if the medallion had not touched the frame. That you wanted to do something different instead of placing it dead centered is OK, but I still think a bit of negative space at the bottom and on the right would be a good idea. Still this is a different and well taken photo, and I wish you luck with the contest.

An interesting initial impact.
Creative concept. Innovative approach. Imaginative presentation.
But globular subjects look better in centered square format framing.
Thanks for sharing... Best of luck in the contest!

nice effective presentation for this contest. I like the structure and placement of the medallion in the square and the darkened backdrop enhances the mysticism of the circles content which has a nice chiaroscuro effect
