Probably a million of these :) I didn't get the topic until I went by the post office and saw the crowds mailing off their returns. I hope the lone tack doesn't do me in. Surely the clever title will compensate. ;)

Cropped, burned out some background effects, cloned out dirt, blurred the background, applied neat image, save for the web. Applied USM and put on a thin border.

I love that this is just one single tack! Nice composition, too. (so many of my comments today seem to be related to composition - I guess it's something I'm trying to pay attention to)

Very catchy composition. Like the simplicity of it, and the size and sharpness of the tack. Nicely cropped.

Wow. The simplicity is overwhelming. Unfortunately, there are no tacks in this image. ;) I think you did right by only using 1 tack. The background is slightly blown but it is not distracting because of the rest of the image. Good work! 9

Clever play with words. Even better however would have been to show two tacks
in the pic as tacks sounds exactly like tax.

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