I think sharper focus would have helped this image really jump off the page

High contrast subject doesn't make for a great B&W photo. If you had zoomed in tight on the magnifier perhaps you could have found your middle tones.

Definatly meets the challenge well the stark clear whites and pure blacks really stand out. I would like to have seen it completly fill the frame but still very nice.

Very snappy and contrasty, but the subject in the middle seems kind of off. I don't know what it is and I think that something else might have worked better. As a sharp image you get high marks, but not enough midtones to make this a great black and white, and subject is uninteresting.
