(1) COMPOSITION (CONTENT) Well composed. The funky colors are what makes this photo special. As one voter put it, the colors make the tacks seem to glow. The scene is also very interesting, making this a photograph that keeps the attention of the viewer for a long period of time. The longer one looks at it, the more interesting details come to light. This is a photograph that would not do as well in a thumbnail view, as many of the really interesting details are lost.

(2) BACKGROUND The background is perfect for this photograph, and the colors of the background are mirrored in the tacks themselves. This serves to tie the whole work together.

(3) CAMERA WORK ,TECHNICAL Exposure is good. Composition is very strong. I wish the tacks were just a little sharper (focus) as this is the one small area that bothers me.

The color cast to everything puts a surreal feeling into the photograph, as well as adding to the feeling of unreal. The surreal feeling is almost like pulling the viewer into a dream world. This is one of the dominate aspects of this photograph.

(5)MEETING THE CHALLENGE This photo does a very good job of meeting the challenge.

(6) MY OPINION ON THE PHOTO A very good photograph. I could see it hanging on the wall in many homes. The colors are exquisit.

I like the background colors a lot. I wish the tacks were more in focus or prominent somehow, though. That background is killer (in a good way), though.

Hmmm. Yes it is. Too bad there are no tacks in the image. ;) Its a little out of focus but I like the way it makes the background look. 7 for the colors.

Great lighting effects make for an eyecatching image. The upward pointing spikes give these small items an appearance of being large and powerful.
