Sorry but it is way too much photoshopped for me.

Way over processed...nice idea though, a feeling of art:) 7

Nice composition but the pins in the back look really wierd to me for some reason, though you could be going for a more abstract feel in which case it works.

This shot pushes the boundaries of photographic integrity IMHO therefore I can not give it a very high score...

A bit too much post processing for my tastes

This is an effect I don't find very appealing. It looks like this image might be fairly interesting and a good subject for the challenge. Unfortunately I can't get by my dislike of the effect to give the photograph the score it may deserve.

even though i don't particuliarly care for the shot i do feel it is a good photo and good example of shallow dof....just can't get excited about push pins

My immediate assumption would be you have used this effect to cover up something bad about the photo as this effect is certainly not that interesting to look at in my opinion.

I don't know what you did with the pins in the background, maybe you should have left them the "natural" way they are. They look too manipulated.

it's not quite appealing to me. It's a great idea. but needs more clarity on the front pin.

The front Push Pin looks great it is just the other ones look out of place or fake....

Honestly, I don't think this will do stellar here, but I love it and can say confidently it belongs in a portfolio. The unusual blurring of the background tacks is a great idea.

The shallow depth of field works here, but the lighting seems to be creating something that doesn't appeal to me visually.

seems like sharpening has made the out-of-focus pins unrealistic, edges too sharp for objects out of focus. Also the metal would be nice to see.

Great affect! The foreground and background pins are in a great contrast of focus.
