I thnk you have a great idea here. Have you thought about reshooting it? Maybe a bit tighter on the composition and darken the rest of the area to make the spark plug and spark stand out? I see some noise which makes me thing that you boosted the exposure or used the shadow/highlight tool. EIther way that did leave you a little flat on the lighting.

Still even with all of this I don't think you deserved your sub 4 score.

Let me know if you ever try this one agan, I would like to see it.

Good idea. Feel it is a bit flat. Maybe a bit more contrast and tighter crop?

The sparkplug end should have been sharper and a tighter composition would really help.

This looks out of focus.

it fits the challenge, but that's about the only positive thing I can say about it, so I'll leave it at that.

the spark of the plug that ignites the gas that drives piston that spins the wheel of civilization. The spark of life. I like the metaphor, but I'm an engineer. I doubt most people will have no idea of what this is.

Interesting idea. The graniness of the photo is a bit distracting. A closer crop of the spark plug may also have been beneficial.

Very creative photo. I myself would have never thought of a sparkplug.
