I think it's an overused idea - the iron - for this challenge. But it fits the challenge, so I'll grade on how well the photo really is. :)

I like the lighting. It does create a mood to this photo that the other irons don't have.
I like the placement of the iron.

The iron came out overexposed and out of focus.
The tag adds an unwelcome contrast.

Most people don't iron their jeans :) but I won't count it against you.

Overall, I give it a 5.

Ya ironing jeans seems to be a bit of an irony, nice textures and shades.

That iron reminds me of the Starship Enterprise in orbit around a planet :-) The composition is good, the jeans look awesome in B&W. The iron doesn't really seem to fit in somehow, don't ask me why. The serrated edges on some of the iron's edges are also a little distracting.
