Yup. It's harsh/sharp/bright, but there are things you can do to resolve that.

If you have PS, take the original and duplicate the layer.
Set that duplicate to Filter/Highpass (3-9 px)
Set that layer to overlay
Edit/Fade to a point where there are no halos, but it still pops off the screen.

This type of sharp tends to have less of a piercing effect on metal and high contrast images.

The lighting is a tad harsh, and a bit too sharp. When the image first loads it almost pokes me in the eye.

Some dusty bits here. At first I couldn't figure out how this would hold DVD's then I remembered the shiny tools part of your comments. I don't think I'd be using the big curved drill bit any time soon. I know it is lens distortion. Bright orange and bright twisted metal make for an interesting subject.

Sorry to hear about the puppies, I hope they are OK.

OOOOOH! Shiny!
Masonry bits, and concrete dust? Pretty cool with the shiny over the red background.

Nice color and focus. I'm seeing some pincushioning at the upper right. The "holsters" seem a bit soft.

drill bits...them is drill bits. I like the contrast between the orange plastic and the chrome of the bits. However, I suggest you keep your tools cleaner....seriously, nice shot.
