Pleasant to view your clean, competent images. Pity your link to Fotolia does not link to either your images there or to this particular image. Just linking to the general Fotolia site is not so interesting (unless you're a stock holder ;-)

Nice setup, I would have liked to have seen the gloves and shovel a bit dirtier though... but whatever, who am I to complain! Good show!

Here is my personal scoring scale with 2 points each. The idea behind is to justify the score I gave. You have all right not to agree with it. This is just my personal opinion with whatever little photography knowledge I have. Hope it helps.

- Meets the challenge - 2 out of 2
- Lighting/Exposure - 1 out of 2
- Composition - 2 out of 2
- Concept and execution - 1 out of 2
- Over all image, WOW factor - 1 out of 2

Very clean and well executed, but it comes across as a little flat I think. 6
