I love the concept with this photograph. I like how you used the dust of the spoon to emulate crumbs or liquid residue. I also like how the title delivers the concept however there are things in the photograph that I couldnít figure out. One is the knifeís position, it just doesnít seem in the correct position and this could be argued that the focal point is the fork and spoon; however the knife plays a big part with the cutting. I also think maybe showing more of the knife and the fork would have added some visual elements. Maybe using a plate with some color or texture would have enhanced it.

Technical & Set-up:
Overall the setup looks good. Iím assuming that you used some sort of lighting as I see a hot section in the lower right corner. Looking at the histogram I noticed itís exposed towards the highlight side which I can see from the light color of the plate. I do think that maybe adding a second light from the opposite side would have eliminated the black tint on the silverware, as the histogram for the silverware is exposed more towards the Shadows.

Camera Work:
I like the DOF as all the elements in the photograph are in focus.

Post Processing:
As for post processing I donít if there much that can be done except maybe do some levels adjustment on the silverware. This would remove some of the shadows with the silverware.

My Opinion:
This is a very nice photograph the message is very clear. It meets the challenge very well. Overall I would have rated this image between 65-75 out of 100. Well done keep up the good work.

Nice touch having the grain of the spoon in the plate, gives it some realism.

GREAT SHOT...but position of knife looks a little unnatural. 6
