you're probably going to laugh, but my first thought was "oh, like sperm fighting to be the one that fertilizes the egg!" Strange, but true. Like the use of tools to convey a message. :)

haha, it's like sperm going for the egg. nice idea. the lighting/focus culd be better. and would probably have been stronger if taken on a different surface, and not the carpet(?).

Now that is clever.... Unless I have completely made up my interpretation, in which case I have been looking at pictures for tooo long.

Now that it's coming up on hockey season this picture takes on a whole new meaning. You made a point for making me giggle.

I would like to see this on a solid colored background, i think the design would be more profound.

Great interpretation.

Seems like you took a long time arranging the spanners and not enough time taking the photograph, is is out of focus - way out and the light is bad. Not meaning to sound too negative, but might be a good idea next time to take a bit more time, afterall it's not a candid is it!

great shot... great creativity

I like the way these look like they're watching the center one...

the light is very flat (just one light from the front ?), such shiny objects really demand some more play with light and also offer the opportunity to do so.
I can see you made an effort of the composition but it does not work for me, still too much going on, a bit too messy. 5

Good composition and idea but the lighting is a bit too harsh for my liking, kills the texture and tones on the spanner

I got the sutle message to this photo. Very creative. Good luck.
