Greetings from the Critique Club

I love the density and depth of field of this shot.

The monocrhome choice is very appropriate for your subject and style. It feels like a stock photo shot (that's a compliment).

Your use of the mirror for the shot is also very well executed.

The choice of a portrait framing is interesting, I wonder what square or landscape would do for the level of interest in your composition?

Great b/w. A great welcome mat for the unwanted. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Yep, it's repetitive, but the blur in the background is an interesting contrast with the nice sharpness of the foreground tacks. Excellent lighting and highlights.

Nice set up and very appropriate depth of field. It almost looks like a close-up of some animal's spiny skin.

I liked this picture, for some reason it reminds me or Arlington Cemetary.

Get the feeling that I can see the mirror, but then I could be deluding myself.

I like this photo and the only thing that bothers me about it is the horizon...just goes at a weird angle. The mirror you used just made the angle look awkward. I still gave it a 7.

Yes. Way too many - like an invading hoard of ants! This works for me - the DOF, tones, composition; I like. POV could have been slightly lower but thats just a nitpick. 8 cause I think you did well.

The vastness of the field of tacks might have been emphasized if the DOF were centered further back in the image, placing the foreground somewhat out of focus. Good use of grayscale.
