I'm blown away by the comments (14 during voting!) and the score on this. Had no idea it would do this well.

I love shadows, and waited until last minute, so I had to do something at home and doable without a model.

When you try to make a shadow with your own lighting, it is truly amazing the different things you can create. When you're doing it with a flash, it's like a magic show. You have a guess at what the shadow will be like, but sometimes you're completely surprised at the rabbits that appear.

Thanks for all the comments!!

very lovely, never mind that it is a fork.

If this image fails to place highly, I have misunderstood the challenge. Most impressive execution. Good luck.

That texture is great. Works very well.

the shadow makes a creepy tool out of an every day item - well executed!

...I think this might be the most interesting image of a fork I have ever seen. Utensil photographs usually bore me. The shadow reminds me of those sculptures from the movie Beetlejuice.

I really enjoy the texture here. The composition is also fantastic and really puts a good emphasis on the subject. I like the fact that the shadow is so different thant the actual subject. Great image.

Excellent and nice mastering of shadows. The fork maybe should be brighter or shinny. A 7 from me.

LOVE this!!!! I'm so delighted with the distorted shadow, which seems both demonic and cartoonish. Great surface, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice!!! A shadow, and very much a kind that we don't tend to see. Well done. 9

Beautifully done. There is something a little devilish about that shadow. One of my ribbon choices.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That is just plain cool. Great job.

The classic fork and shadow but your fingerprints are all over this. Great texture and tones on the flat surface. Old wall paper?

The shadow reminds me of a character from the cartoon "Samurai Jack".
