I think I am falling, the tacks are listing to the side. But a VERY nice shot.

Great image. I like the way they hover and seem to be "floating" I gave it a 7.

The relections are cool, but there's nothing in the image that really screams for my attention... The centered tack almost does, but I think the photo would've benefited from 1 tack being silver or a just different color.

Somehow you almost eliminated the double reflection. Did you use a polarizing filter to pull that off?
