It's a manual stapler but I'm sure because of the way it is cropped some will say it could be electronic.

I love the minimalism. I hope this one gets a ribbon.

I like the creativity, you photographed a stapler but you made it interesting, I enjoy the cropping that you did.

I'm usually a hard critic, but I had to give this a 10. Great composition, lighting, background, and idea! A+

A very nice use of space and shape but the subject or story is too weak for your large composition talent

I was going to use a stapler for my shot but I'm sure I wouldn't have been able to get it as good as this. Love the negative space. Only slight concern is the shadow under the actual stapler

Nicely composed, making excellent use of negative space.

Very simplistic approach, which works well. I am not opposed to the BW version, but I think in a mechanical challenge, it might have been better to leave this in the color version showing the chrome. Just a thought. Good job 7.

Great job! Rule of Thirds all the way. Very interesting to view. I'm a little bothered by the 2nd staple. It almost doesn't look like it's "in".

Nice simple composition.

I like your composition and the b&W, could use a little softening in my opinion
