This is a very eye-catching effect! Makes you question your eyes - what is the object what is the shadow? Makes you think about how light effects our perception of shape. I wonder how a slightly different angle to the composition would work - more diagonal? I love the gentle range of tones inthe shadow. 9

Nice effect. I think it would have been good to shoot from a higher perspective than here, so you have a bit more of the real fork. I showed this to someone and I had to point out that the shadow was actually a shadow. If the real fork wasn't shot from the edge only, there would also be a complementary symmetry.

Holy Fork!... uh, I mean, what a monstrous shadow!
I like your choice of composition, think I would have gone cooler on the colors, but that's just my first impression. One of my favorites this challenge, a very original and well-executed idea.

Nice idea, although the shadow just doesn't look natural. Was it completely Photoshoped?

Edit after challenge: No it wasn't PSed. Good job Ursula. I'm going to have to try this myself now.

Love this shot. I've seen it before with a key and once with a fork also. I tried it myself also, but it didn't have the same effect as yours. Great job here. Good luck.

I did something similar to this called "Unbent Shadow" in the Shadows II challenge. I like your variation. Very clever.

Holy crap that is cool. Did you just "burn" the shadow image to get it like that? Great job. 8.

That is definitely not a fork for peas!

Yes!! This is exactly the kind of thing that I am thinking about when I think of "shapes". Great lighting and composition; wonderful execution of the concept of shapes. 10
