harsher lights, sharper shadows, white more white will help this photo

Fantastic. How long did it take to get all these nails in place? Beautiful symmetry. A 10 for this one.

This shot confuses the hell out of me. :)

But, my confusion aside, it's a neat rendering, and like your composition.

I really like the precision of placement of the nails, and of course the shadow is the "frosting on the cake." Well done. 10

This is really well done. It is simple, has no distracting bright spots, and is clever. I really like the shadow positioning.

Very creative, nicely original, and I'm envious because I don't get ideas like this! Good execution. Would have liked the nails at about the 2 o'clock position a bit better lit, but that's a NIT. Should be a top ten finisher!

This is great, a bit out of focus, but could be a great photo with a bit of work - 6

I like this idea with the shadow. It fits the challenge well. I'm not sure why it doesn't really hold my interest...although the more I look at it, the more I like it. Maybe if the contrast was a little higher and less gray? Anyway, I do like the composition alot.
