Wonderful line and positioning within the frame. Very different and intriguing. Great as a black and white. Nice job. Bumping from 6 to 7.

Novel concept for this challenge. Interesting poinst of view. The composition doesn't suit my eye.

4 - DMC. In my opinion, there is only one tool here (vs two, toolS). It is a good photo though, a little dark perhaps in areas, but tricky with the white background also focus on the top 'tap' would be better in my opinion.... but for me, meeting the Challenge is the first priority.

Creative interpretation of the word 'tools'. I like the subject. I'd like to see the pant leg moved a bit to the right or left in the composition so it isn't so centered-but that might just be my personal taste coming through.

I love the feeling of motion. A vantage point a little further to one side would have let us see under the foot and the foot behind more clearly. This is an excellent shot, beautiful clean lines and perfect for this challenge. 9.

Very creative capture. The angle and positioning is just perfect. I think you could chop off a bit from the left of the frame, but there's unmistakable beauty in the shot. Loger I look, the left of the frame bothers me more, but it's not a big deal when you have captured such a shot. Well done.

Great photo... I would have liked to see a bit more depth in grey-tones
