7 - Met the Challenge 'just' (I can't identify a trade here), and the jury is out on whether a screw is in fact a tool. This is a good shot though and creative and given the angle and detail you have made them look like little tools, so in my 'books' it just scraped in. Criticism; I would like to see the 'line up' completely in synch, that one in the third row second back needs to be uniform. I like the way the one right fore is on the side showing the 'face' and I like the light on it. The colors, while 'nice' I think detract a little from the metal aspect of the subjects. Perhaps a different color, or even b/w - though I think you would have lost the screwdriver more if you did that. I like the reflections (looks like a veiling of water?) and the depth. If the 'edges' of the 'studio' (or maybe it is just the crop) were more symmetrical, or out of frame, it would make this a better photograph, in my opinion.

EDIT: Just re-read Challenge desc, seems nails are 'tools' so I guess screws are too so... 'ok'... 8

The reflections of the screws makes this a much more interesting shot than it forst appears

I love this shot, it looks as if you could reach out and touch the items. One of my top scorers, good luck.

the title is remarkably ambiguous ... The color is great ... The composition is hurt by the fact that the screwdriver gets confused at the tip. Overall nice image - I like the dark reflections. 7

Interesting. I like the linear quality to this and the golden/amber tones. Nicely focused and certainly a clever interpretation.

Er, that's the wrong driver. Those are Pozi-drive screws...
