Alina, please post your comments on Trac so the theme author can see 
them. If you're not sure what to post, take a look at some of the other 
tickets to get an idea of what other reviewers say.

Make sure you've done a full review of the theme so when/if the theme 
author resubmits the theme, (s)he'll be aware of all the issues you've 
found, not just the initial ones.

Chip has put together this guide, and I recommend taking a look if 
you're unsure about anything:
