Added note:

I took this outside on my back porch (covered) and as some of you know I am a hair dresser...well in the first few images there were all kinds of reflections going on so I put on one of my hair cutting caps (black) and I set my camera up on the tripod (of course) used the remote and wrapped my arms around the little stool that I had the meat tenderizer on (like I was hugging the air) and shot this...that's why its so black and chrome-ie IMO. It was really hard to get three of those little spikes in sharp focus with my lens so I gave up with the 2 very sharp one instead...Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_840667.jpg this was my outtake...but the orientation was sooooo dull...I must have flip flopped back and forth between these two pictures 50 times...

Well Done! I suspect that you may get a ribbon for the new year!

Good one! I was clueless and didn't have a funny answer either. That's an awful glossy meat tenderizer.

Poor meat! That is a serious tool!

I like how this looks slick and shiny. These look like some kind of supports for a plate.

Meat tenderizer? Looks too smooth though.

I know that they're NOT Hershey Kisses. I really like this abstract. The b/w conversion is terrific as are the lines and the dof.

Very sleek, is this metal points on a belt or something of that sort?

Smooth dark shine lends a high tech feel to the image, enhanced by the diagonal composition. Should score well.

Nice light, seems like ceramic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/22/2009 02:01:24 PM
i have no idea what this is, but i like it! the b&w conversion enriches the 'mystery'

All the entries should be untitled - or at least not name themselves as something they are/aren't, so well done :)
Otherwise I'm stumped (couldn't you give us a clue in the title? Oh.)
Something to stick the turkey on so it doesn't move around while you're carving it?

No clue but a nice image 7

It looks new, but what it is I have to say: I don't know
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Don't know, but very pointy. And gorgeously lit.

A metal studded bracelet? Nice tones and smoothness.
