I found the lighting to be a real challenge with the clear marbles, you could always see my light reflected, not sure if that's a bad thing. I had problems getting the forks to show their real colour as they kept getting blended into the orange. And of course getting the marbles to balance was a challenge : )

Very creative and I love the lighting, the red background and the fact that everything is so sharp. Good luck!

This photo is simply amazing. I love how the marbles are perfectly balanced on the forks... and the amazing attention to detail to add that bug-- or whatever it is-- to the top. 10

I like this version very much, in that you decided to change from the usual eggs :) to marbles. Great clarity and wonderful choice of colours. 9
