    Well, the idea was good. A couple things I would do to improve the photos:
    - Clean off the balls so they look good
    - Tripod your camera and use a longer exposure so you dont need a flash.
    - watch your backgrounds. (the background in #2 isn't the most flattering)

    I would say do a reshoot with those in mind and your good to go.

    I agree - Great shots, but one other thing.. Try not to be seen in your shots.. It's the hardest thing to do when shooting round reflective surfaces. I would set up a light tent - check this link out. - Here's a quick way to help set up a cheap light tent, using only facial tissues!

    Thanks, uberben & Dollface, for your advices, I'll keep all that in mind.
    I couldn't clean or rearrange those balls, as I took the shots at work (that's the background in #2 - front entrance of the restaurant where I work) in between serving coffee & pancakes :).
    I couldn't really focus & take my time. Flash was used only in the first picture; for the rest - existing light in the restaurant. I agree about the reflection of myself. Thanks for the link, Dollface, I'll definately check it out.
    Thanks again for your comments, I appreciate them. And I try to remember each of your suggestions so i can improve my photos in the future ;).
