Your pic was assigned to me for the Critique Club, so I'll comment on your submission.
Firstly, what your picture made me feel: With the title, you get the feeling of hard work. Your rope is used to work. Pulling, all day long. Then, you put it away for the day. Winding it up. Almost got to smell the dirt on it.
What I like about the pic: I like the texture of the rope in the in-focus part. I also like the rythm of the coils.
What I like a bit less: As stated, you should always make your pic as big as possible, using the max dimensions. There's a tutorial on the site you can review. I'm also wondering how the pic would've looked if you'd inverse the DOF, making the foreground in focus and the background OOF, because the eyes starts at the foreground and is led to the back coils. It just seems a bit odd to start your eyes with something out of focus. I dunno, wondering.
You have met the challenge perfectly with this concept, but I feel there's a bit more work to be done technically. Not a bad image though! Keep it up!!!
