you have a really fine DOF here. Looks like a bolt head or mounting knob on a bicycle?

a knob on the bottom of a plastic chair in the emergency room?

Good aplication of the rule of thirds. Some thing i'm noticeing in this challenge is people over useing DOF in the macro. Unfortunatly it detracts from you image. nice other wise 5

Great dof and textures here... nicely composed and a great range from blacks to whites. As to what it is? Some kind of metal piece to hold something together? Great shot!

Its a screw sort of thing attaching a piece of metal to something else for some reason but it looks really nice in macro and B&W

Nice shot of a scraper?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very good DOF and composition here. No idea what it is other than something metal, probably a part of a tool or machine. That looks like a knob that can turn.

A hold down knob on the corner of a cover for something.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I very much like the composition here, cutting off the little bit of edge at the bottom works well (for me). I like all the soft greys. ~8
