Nice concentric pattern, but I cannot identify this is a tool.

I like the pattern as well. Might be tempted to crop in a bit more from the top right.

Would be a good candidate for focus stacking.

Thanks all.

Jim, it's 3 ratchets stacked inside each other.
PW, I see your point, but to me the image lives because of its symmetry.
AuntiPode, what is focus stacking?

Thanks again!

I like it. Because of the symmetry. Because I cant readily identify it but can recognize that it might be a tool. I like the square crop. I'm a bit mixed about the left lower corner as the object fades into the distance. Might go a tad darker but I think its good as is.
Good luck, and congrats on your recent win!

Focus stacking is taking multiple images and combining them to create greater depth of field - usually so close-ups of small objects can have extended sharpness that might otherwise require an f-stop too small to retain maximal sharpness. Try googling "focus stacking".

Sounds like Photoshop is required...I don't have Photoshop or know how to use it

Actually, Photoshop isn't required, although I do recommend it. You can buy stacking software for less US$100.

For example, here is a tutorial page I found with a quick google of "focus stacking software":
