Thanx, John, and all other commenters. Personally, I don't see how this image can be "improved"; it's exactly what I wanted it to be in every respect. Clearly, the "average voter" and I aren't on the same wavelength, but that's cool by me. I love this picture.

Regardless of your 30th place, I still contend that you have created a true masterpiece. Yours is the first photo that I have added to my favorites.

So simple. I like the black fabric's texture, very subdued. I have to learn simplicity like this. [10]

Wow. Perfect all around. The lighting is remarkable. Focus is superb throughout. The border adds a formality to the shot. Truly the best so far.

i dont know if you could help it or not, but i would've liked to see this w/out the writing on the blade (perhaps use the other side?) anyway, good picture

If the scissors had been perfect (no marks, discoloration, etc) then I would have given it a 10 - reduced to a 8 but still great!

Technically sound shot. Lighting and Clarity are excellent.

While I feel you image lacks the wow factor, it sure has great quality and definition. I'm not thrilled by your subject, but I have to say you've managed to capture it in a most professional way, which makes it stand out.Nice job.
