Simple image, not so simple to make, but I accomplished my goal of learning a lot. Large softbox overhead. Side arm with black foil for slight shade to avoid clipping egg highlights. Side arm slipped down, breaking two eggs. Two reflectors on camera right to reduce shadow from dish. Reflector on camera left to reduce shadows further (repositioned many time before getting it right. Fussed with tripod endlessly to get acceptable composition. JPG straight from camera, resize for web, nothing else at all. Partial desaturation would have helped, but not allowed in minimal rules (full saturation looked odd).

Three layers of white...not bad! I would like to see the white a bit whiter. I do like your approach to the challenge and I find that you made the eggs looks interesting.

Nicely done white on white... there are just enough details and shadows for my taste.... would love to know how you got the pale color in minimal, not that I'm questioning it at all, I'm not. The exposure is spot on.

Good, but not the best egg shot - still, it's easy to drop a 7 here.
