*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

Congratulations for your high finish with this very effective studio setup that meets the challenge very well.

I love your carefully thought out setup and attention to detail and forethought that must have gone into it, the end result with the flowing oil is excellent. I like the shapes and the clarity and the way your oil flows onto each of the olives in turn. What I am enjoying the most is all of the fascinating reflections they are a delight. I also like the feint shadows that are giving the background an appealing gradient that adds weight to the image as a whole.

There's nothing I don't like and nothing I can add that would improve your excellent result, well done, Sid

This i have seen before, but i'm not going to hold that against you. :-)
It is certainly original to this challenge. The sharpness is good and the greenish color at the bottom of the background matches the color of the olives.
The lighting is a bit uneven (top to bottom). It looks correctable in post. The camera (or spoon) angle could have been a bit better as well. I see the sides of the top two spoons bu the inside of the third.
I cannot decide whether it needs a bit more color vibrance (or saturation) or not.

Cool visual. I feel like more dynamic lighting cold have pushed this image further, but great concept.

Great idea! I like the off angles of the spoons. Some of the highlights seem blown out, but all in all very nice.

Wonderful technicals. Crisp, clean and sharp. This really needs a background with a color that compliments the olives. The gradient does help to move your eye down the photo following the path of the poured oil.
