From the critique club:

Like I often do, you have selected to go to the peripheral and away from the center. As you know, this is a double-edge sword. Yet, I commend you because this image has a lot of punch, or in keeping with the challenge should we say "kick."

A very good composition and take credit for inserting the white between the yellow. Also, the arrangement of the of the tapes are very well placed.

Of course, we all have a style and preferences. I would have extended the dof a little deeper simply because the wonderful trip for the eyes ends too quickly and so the eye goes up and is forced right back down again. This is not said to diminish your interpretation, rather, only a possibility. You know, some ideas leave our heads spinning with hundreds of questions and the result is usually directly tied to how much time we can give.

To conclude, this is a very strong image and do not dwell on its low score of 4.8. The purist voted you down because they could not make the correlation that the measurement of feet was derived from the human foot much like the decimal system is used because we have ten fingers.

But the image is strong and certainly worth framing. This is the ideal picture over a work bench. The colors are rich and is very pleasing to look at.

Very original, I am alway impressed by people that can think out of the box when I can not. I score this one high just on its originality.

the area of focus seems a bit random and not differentiated enough from the unfocused area - but then I always analyze everything ...

Unusual take on the challenge, and the contrasting strips and shallow DOF create an interesting composition.

Doh!! *groan* I just knew this was coming.

It's good though. I like the colors and the DOF. Nice.

Going for the not so obvious. Food interpretation.
