I used the magnifying glass trick in a lot of my earlier photos. I think it's in the tutorial I wrote for DPC too. Glad to see it works for other people as well.
What I really like about this shot is how the photos really are nothing more than a background to the tack. The Focus on the tack is wonderful and the DOF really helps that to stand out and be something more than 'just a photo of a tack'.
Lighting is great, no bright spots or distracting shadows. I like the angle you chose for this. It's not directly head on, but not a straight side photo either. Nice in-between.
Interesting to look at, technically well done. The only nit-pick I would have is that you DID stab the guy in the head. Maybe a different photo there might be a little less weird, but still an alright shot.

Very effective lighting, and like how sharp the foreground is and how soft you did the rest.

You've stabbed someone in the head with a tack.

Ow! You impaled him. There are no TACKS in this image! ;) I think the green and red tacks balance each other out. I like the composition and the DOF. POV okay. 6 from me!

'Tacks for the memories ...' Isn't that how the tune goes? Or do we not remember Bob Hope? I appreciate that the colors all work well together. I like the use depth of field.

The stray eyeball with the sharp focus at the bottom of the frame draws my attention out of the image.
