Mean Mr. Mustard has his revenge.

I have never heard this beatles song, the name just popped out at me from this list //www.beatletracks.com/btitles.html

I used a single lamp for light, used a CD as reflector to light up the left side of the knife.

Hey there from the Critique Club

First of all, congrats on your highest scoring entry to date. Also, this is a remarkable improvement, as echoed by the voters, from your first entry. Nice work.

Camera Work/Technical: Everything in the frame is nicely focused, and the white balance seems on as all the colors look exactly as my eye would expect them to look.

Lighting: I think that the lighting is the main strength of you photograph. You did a great job with the side light source. I really like the highlight on the curve of the knife handle. It is just enough to set it off from your black background.

Composition/Content: You had a nice start with the composition, but I think that your chosen crop feels a little crowded. I'd like to see just a little more space at the bottom of the bottle.

My Opinion: While not a Beatles fan (I don't know very many of their songs), I think that you met the challenge well. I am with you on this one, never heard it before. Nicely creative. I think that this one scored pretty close to its potential. It was just a little too commonplace to do a great deal better.

Eric

lol - that's some mean mustard! Nice setup, lighting may have needed a bounce from the left to stay the sharp shadows but maybe that would have taken some of the drama / harshness of this heinous mustard crime! :)

Nicely done.

This is bad or rather Mr. Mustard is very bad! Funny idea. Well done.

I instantly cracked up when I saw this, great humor. It's hard to see the knife with the black background though.
