cool shallow DOF effect. I think the impact could be somewhat improved if the background scissors were placed so that one of its fingerholes provides a circular frame for the eye of the needle.

Second look, lovely DOF and good macro capture of the eye of the needle, nice to see what was caught in my toe all those years ago when I trod on one and it broke (bad memories - fantastic shot) Bumping up score.

Would have liked it to be a little more focused...

The depth of field appears to be absolutely spot-on. The background seems a little 'blocky', at least on my monitor. Perhaps it was over-compressed?

Excellent shallow DOF - lighting was well executed

Great macro. I personally don't care for the subject matter, but technically a great photo. Good luck!

The background is blurred nicely--we recognize the objects which places the main subject in context and the color scheme is simple and pleasing. Nice job!
