Thanks for your comments everyone. Arrrrggg, lines, what is it with me and lines. Need to start a petition to allow cloning out lines ;-)

My buddy Chef Marco sure can cook, but is hopeless at juggling so we had to tie up some tools with fishing line.

The fish line tie is perfect, I actually thought it could be real for a second!
Nice job

Congratulations on your ribbon. It's a nice interpretation, and the bright background colours add to the sense of fun.

What a fun shot! I just wish the background would have been simpler in order to see the "tools" more clearly. Great expression on his face. Looks like he's having fun.

Not too keen on the background choice but overall an excellent shot.

Great lighting and focus. I don't like the crop and hence composition that much. Good Luck.

Great setup and idea. Hope the cleaver doesn't top his tips :)
Not fond of the background.

too bad they wouldn't let you edit out the wires, nice execution

Nice capture!

A nice image, but, it would have looked better with a simpler background, IMHO.

Nicely done apart from the visible wire.

Love it. Great capture.

A nice idea, and great background lighting. I think the crop is too close on the edges. Also the blur on the small pan gives some nice movement, but that movement is lacking on the objects that are suspended, lessening the effect.

I really liked this one, but the unlevel lines of the colored blocks of light were so distracting. It was hard to keep my eyes on the person and the suspended utensils. Realizing that this one would have been hard to shoot with the white chef's coat, the shinier whisk and spatula opposed to the darker cleaver and whatever is in his left hand, it still didn't get my highest marks. However, kudos on what you did capture.
