Just wondering what you meant by missing an element? The challenge was to include at least one of the elements...it didn't have to include all of them. I think a lot of people didn't read the description for the challenge and just shot off the cuff, this hurt some good photographers. A rock in this image would have thrown off the entire image and ruined it. It's sad that you voted lower becuase you may not have understood the challenge.

Very colorful and rich. Like the sharpness of the scissors and the reflections on them.

Very clean and intriguing. OOF foreground curls are distracting to me. More of a diagonal on the scissors might have been stronger. Reflection on the scissors is sweet. Strong entry.

ok this image is similar to others that contain scissors and paper, (I was even looking for a rock somewhere) BUT you have added a new level to it. You kept it from being boring and appearing to look like it was shot with a camera phone. You've got great colors and different shapes to draw the eyes around the image, your scissors reflect the yellow one nicely and your DOF is perfect. Thank you for being creative and putting some thought to your image. Good luck

great colors and very nicely lit...I like the even/diffused light you have here which lets the metal look great 8

One of the finest I've seen so far. Creative use of color, design and elements.

I like the use of color and shape to add texture to this image. Well lit scissors, the white background bothers me a bit. I have no clue what could replace it, I just noticed it so I found it distracting. Overall and excellent job with a limited subject. 8 !
