You can never go wrong with odd numbers. Terrific composition and a wonderful take on the subject. It's almost like the start of a race. Go grasshopper, go.

Terrific subject choice and treatment! My only nit would be to crop it closer at the top to make it even with the tight crop on the bottom (or open it a bit more on the bottom). I agree with skewsme, too - the colored screw heads add some visual balance.

I gave this a 7 during the challenge. I thought the colors were quite striking. The catch was amazing too! I liked the added touch of the color on the nail heads.

Gorgeous buggers! Mango and key lime! What you did with the screws is a nice touch.

Great colors and angle on your shot. IMO would have left the screws in greyscale as they don't really add anything to your shot. Other than that, realy like the composition and idea.

Gorgeous color and the screws being in color adds that little bit of extra goodness IMO.
