Nice creative picture but i wouldn't have put the hand in.

Nice concept. The hand is a bit out of focus, which I find distracting.

I would perhaps use different lighting in this to showcase the metal a little bit more.

This is a excellent photo to use as a "Depth of Field" example. to get more image in focus. Try shoting with a smaller appreture, you may need more light to do so.

i like the idea here. i think the carrots are too neat, adds to that "staged" feeling. the hand being out of focus and so bright bothers my eye.

The main subject in this photo seems to be the carrot slices, rather than the knife.

Cropping needs work. Too much non-related imagery detracts from the subject. Color looks oversaturated

Nice color, but makes me think of food rather than metal. Rather plain other than the color.

Unfortunately the bright carrot and blurry hand distract focus from the duller knife - perhaps a slightly different composition would have helped - good idea though

I feel like the carrots are more of the focus that the knife.

But the picture isn't quite sharp

I would have liked this much better without the hand and the carrot greens.

Now, how do you get the cut pieces to line up like that. Mine always stick to the knife, and then fall off later, and fall under then knife... :) As far as the photo goes, skin tone is very cool, as common for flash photos on some cameras - dropping the blue levels, or upping the red might help warm the tones a bit.

the colours on the carrot is very nice, but the same cant be said of the hand holding the knife, the color is too cool (bluish)
