    As far as your questions on light, exposure and composition are concerned, I like it all. The top rounded edge of the wrench being out of focus may be a lose of detail from switching to a jpg as you mentioned or a lack of DOF. Never the less, that is what is lacking in this image for me. Here is what I came up with after a bit of tweaking.

    hello defectir3,

    thanks for sharing your photograph. As it stands, I like the depth of field, texture and warm tinting of the photograph.

    From a composition point of I would get rid of the light upper half of the photo - and make it a sillouette all around. Burn all the light spots that are not wrench. This way the subject will stand out more.

    I would be my preference to add some sort of emotive element to the photograph. You have wrench there - make it tell a story. You can put an item in the tongs - a coin, flower, a tooth. Perhaps even an oily thumbprint. Any subtle addition to the photograph can make a mundane subject much more personal :)
