Living in a country that's not your home is not easy. Especially today.

Used basic photoshop to enhance - levels, curves, and rubber stamp to get rid of a couple distracting dots.

Nice lighting, and I love the way the red one is perfectly sharp while the others are soft. Nice control.

I really like the texture you can see on the main red tack. very nice shadows as well. I gave it a 7.

Wow. This is highly amusing! Anthropomorphizing tacks. Unfortunately there are no tacks in this image. ;) I like this. It speaks to me of the human condition and what we must endure. And its a pretty good picture. 8 because I like it.

This pleases me no end. I love the very unusual shape of these pushpins, the gentle, ruminative softness of the image. It's not easy to make a philosophical, humanist statement with a line of pushpins, but you've succeeded.
