Greetings from the Critique Club!

I ranked this photo very high, and it ended up getting a good score, so you should be pleased. I really enjoy many qualities of this image. During the challenge, I noted: "Simple tools, yes? No. You communicate much more here and bring your image some mythic qualities that really delight me. Thanks!" This is all true. Not only is the arrangement of these odds and ends marvelous, with lighting you've been able to make us see past these tools. It has a mood to it that makes us think of workmanship, craftsmanship and the mysteries they contain. It's almost as if by showing us this extreme close up, you are hinting that their uses are many and and perhaps unfathomable in their entirety. Sorry to get metaphysical on you.

Technically, this image is wonderful. Good arranging, great cropping and focus, and super lighting. It provides textures and surfaces that are engaging and fun to explore with the eye. Artistically, it is wonderful as well.

I suppose that's about all I can say. Keep up the excellent work. I look forward to seeing your work in the future!

-David

Definitely a nice macro... I like the color cast (purple) that is hitting these subjects... that is a nice element... nice shot :) - setzler

I really like the different colours reflecting off the metals. Good detail in this photo. Maybe using a shallower DOF would bring more depth into it, but then again on DPC a shallow DOF isnt normally very successful with the voters. 8

So, did you use colour lighting here? It looks great! Nice close focus, good and sharp too, I like the way you can see the nails in the bottom. Your thin black framing suits this photograph.
