Very nice idea. I like this a lot. I didn't vote in this challenge, but might have given it an 8 or 9 I'd say.

A very cool use of shadows.

Took me a while to catch on to this..But love it. Not sure if maybe the shadow should have been a little stronger to get the message across but I also like the fact that it's just a hint of shadow. A tad stronger would help. The title of course helped. Giving 8 but I have a feeling fast track voters are going to nail you. Pity

Subtle, minimalist, beautiful. Love how an entire story is told with so few elements.

Wish the wisk shadow was more prominant.

I like the subtlety of the shadow over the egg. It is sort of ominous and kind of portrays the fact that that little ole egg is going to be subject to some violence soon... the violence of being whisked in the bowl! It has very nice and soft diffuse light but I think the whisk shadow could have been made a touch darker by altering it's distance to the egg.
