The compositon is a little hard to get oriented to, but, the lighting is very beautiful and carries the day. Creative.

How creative! This is beautiful (except that little dark spot in the corner, which I will not hold against you.

I like the overall image. The one thing that distracts me and some may like it is the darkness at the top of the image. Gave it a 7.

There are no tacks in this image. ;) The color and focus are a little off but the concept is good. Think a white background would have worked better. 6 for the originality

Perhaps it was a choice to use warm light for this shot, but I wonder whether it makes things look muddy in a way that detracts from the photo? The golden and red pins probably are improved by the look. The green and violet pins take on a moody smoky look which is interesting. I think it is the muddiness of the dark shadows that bother me most, and the odd color of the background highlights. ... Okay, after photoshopping the incandescent light out of it I realize that I'm no happier with the photo. I really love its colorful transparent elements individually, but there is something about the composition that still bothers me.

A lovely combination of shapes and colours. It makes an ordinary object look special.

Another classic DPC theme reprised in "tacks"... I wish the tacks were sharper, though.

I think this could have used a bit more light
