I like this subject a lot but grainie focus and hot spots dtract from it's effect. Best of luck.

A wonderful shot, a great mental image of the heritage of the plane. I'd like to see it in a less sterile environment, perhaps with something that would indicate the on-going usefulness of the tool. (Perhaps wood shavings??? Whatever spoke to you as an artist).

I miss the shadow

good shot...the background looks a little overexposed - like where it meets the handle on the right...but that's just a minor comment. nice work.

Too much white.

very sharp... very clear. looks like its just floating.

strong light but no shadows ? I will be interested to see how you did this and read your comments after the challenge.

nice shot for advertising. maybe some wood shavings as a prop would have worked.

Good shot. Nice colour. It's interesting that your tool doesn't cast any shadow. It looks like it is floating in space - how did you achieve that? Maybe showing some surface that it sits on would have added to the composition, but I think you might have tried to simplify right? Well done. 8

the white background seems a bit bright

Great subject, but I would have liked to have seen a more creative background. Maybe a different lighting scheme would be nice too. Good luck!

Nice, bright shot. I can see all the details. Good one.

the lighting, combined with the stark background, really takes away from the tool. would be nice to see it in another bg. playing with contrast/levels might help a little with the glariness(sp).
