Couldn't think of anything else...so I set this up on my kitchen floor. I had to prop my camera up on its strap to get the right angle.

Like the composition and quality of the photo, but toe hair really grosses me out...maybe I'm just thingy!

The tack is nicely lit, and I like the reflection, but the hair on the toe is a real distraction, and the photo overall is a bit dark. Nicely cropped.

Great shot... awesomely composed... it may be a tad dark, but I love it anyway.

Oh yuck! Shave those toe knuckles! The challenge called for TACKS. There is only one tack in this image. ;) Macro good - I may be able to find oyu later through a toe print! Think the tones you used are excellent. POV and DOF all well done. Gotta give you a 9. May want to buff out that callous there... ;)

OUCH!!!!! I like this, but I think the dark background makes it hard to see the tack, even with the tack reflecting.

Like and concept and quality of the photo but the execution lacks the threat of the motion - a little too staged.

Oh my god, more hairy toes.
What is it with this site, is this a required qualification?
Lol Nice image 8

This is very well executed. The only thing that bugs me is the dark, thick hair on the toes.

This is a great image, although I view the challenge as Plural, more than one tack.

nice twist on an overused concept.. really makes it stand out from the others.. love the choice of black and white, it really gives this a special feel

Great tonal range and clarity. I would suggest shaving (for lack of better ideas) those toe hairs as they are kind of distracting. 7
