Clever idea....don't love the staging and scissor handles disappear in background.

Nice composition and lighting. The handles on the scissors get a little lost with the background, but otherwise well done. Good luck in the challenge.

I always go with Rock, but I guess paper is ok here. Nicely done.

I'm not sure about the border, and I don't understand the title, but it's a nice shot. I like the crisp detail throughout.

I like the consept, good idea. My only complaint and it's just me being picky...whole image should've been more centered, I can see a bigger gap to the right side. Still great! 8

The focus should be on paper.

classic! as photo so so. the scissors are a bit hide, the paper is on the background. I don't like the composition, a better photo was possible with the same elements.

a centered composition would work fine here, but it is a little off to left and bottom, very good lighting and color. a tad oversharpened. border distracts, had chosen a white one.

Hmm, im not sure what this is about. i dont get the relation between sisscors, rock, or what appears to be paper. ?
