Really like the processing and subtlety of this one as well as how nicely it fulfilled the theme.

Nice warm lighting, and appealing brown tone overall. Like the highlights on the heads.

I just love this picture...I'm not sure how it will do since it isn't "obvious" tacks, it's just so beautiful...the rich brown tones, the light, I could go on and on...I'm giving this a 10.

This is very good, straight forward. Highlights on the tacks, Maybe a little on the deep sepia side which I think hides details, but I wasn't there, so I don't know but you get top marks from me

I was hoping someone would do furniture tacks. (i know, I'm weird!) nice shot.

This is a nicely composed shot, but I'm not sure that the things on the seat are tacks.

Wow. Wish more of the images were like this. If I could, I'd give it a 12. But I am limited here. 10 it is.

I like how you did not just use tacks as I did. But found them in use already. Very strong rustic looking image. One of my top 10's.

love the color & mood.

I'm quite taken by this low-key and totally sideways approach to the challenge. Virtually everyoen else is focusing on the "pointiness" of their tacks, here we see them as retainers or delimiters, not penetrators. I hope this does well.

Good old fashion take on the theme. I like the brown tone throughout the image.

There seems to be a lot of empty space here. Perhaps a tighter crop or a different angle would have helped.

Excellent textures in this shot. I like the colors just as they are as well. I would only say that the tacks do not stand out enough as the main focus of this photograph, yet well executed. 7
