Great idea! Too bad you couldn't have done something with the background behind you. Too many items taking away from the shot (dresser, railing (?) at the top of the spoon, and the blown out area in the handle.)

Novel approach .. but effective (might want some new cutlery though)

Another interesting take on the reflection idea. Two problems, too much clutter in the background and too many scratches on the spoon.

The most interesting thing about this image is that it makes me think "Why did he use a spoon that was so badly marked?"

To shoot chrome or stainless, it really needs to be spotless as it is all about the reflections!! A black background would have worked better than that grey stuff too.
