I set this up in my living room against the front door. I used white butcher paper for a backdrop, and drilled a hole in a piece of particle board to hold the spike. Two reading lamps supplied the lighting. Post processing was as follows:
Convert from Camera Raw
Clone Stamp
Smart Sharpen

Beautiful nonsense, so it fits the challenge. Everything else about it is superb, color, composition, the idea, the lighting and processing.

I wish I had a chance to vote on this challenge.... some really fun images. This one is brilliant in more than color! Nice Job

I like it giving a 6 or better although I find a bit too much light from the left. Maybe kick it down a bit and use a fill from the right. Just guessing, no expert here.
