black cardboard background, the "sting" color correction, crop, levels, usm. used closeup filter on the lens.

I got a comment about the title, I just couldn't find a better one, this is exactly what is written in elvish on the sword, but I guess that is only for LOTR fans to know :)

I really like the lighting and clarity of this shot. If not a LOTR fan (which I'm not), it may not have the same impact. I see that it finished well in such a large challenge, so congratulations on that! I think that a border may help this shot.

Very nicely lit. I think it maybe cropped in little tight on the left. Still nice job, good luck.

I can appreciate the photo - the quality is certainly good. I can't appreciate the title (I don't deduct for titles).
