The tools look like a great subject for still life pictures. However, I can't tell, from the way yours are edited, what you wanted me to see in them. Focus is on the neck of both tools, and the layout seems to show the largness/length of the handles, but it's not totally clear to me.

Here is my very heavy-handed edit that tries to accentuate what might be of particular interest in the picture, and reduce what does not contribute.

Thanks for the post. After taking another look, I realized that the focal point is about south of where I would like it. I like your edit, but I think I need to reshoot it with a better focus.

Thanks for the comments.

It seems the focal poin is in the middle...I would either open it up a little and turn the tools sideways OR open it up alot more and leaven them longwise...

Do you have more tools to put in the picture?

I do have a quite a few different tools to add. My new tripod just showed up, so I'll be playing with this quite a bit more this weekend. Thank you for your feedback!

I'll post my results over the weekend.
