Very clever! Like it alot.
Perhaps a reshoot utilizing the technique for "Spoon" by Keith the Maniac in the Metal Challenge would provide the sensuous and sensual quality and level that you may have intended.

Good effort. For me, the only thing letting this down is the fact that there are scratches on the forks. Perfect, shiny new ones may have been better.

It looks like the inverted fork has blood on the tines, possibly from slicing through the other fork. At first, I found the red reflection distracting, considering the remainder of the photo is basically black & white, but the small splash of color is growing on me.

nice... would prefer to not have the red reflections though... maybe desaturating a little would take care of that

nice concept, great title - nice new forks and a harder shadow would give this the graphic feel I love so much - but that would only make it different, not necesarily better. I would prefer more of a monochrome image without the red. great image - well done

Nice texture shown in the forks. Maybe a little to light in bottom right corner. Also I don't think the red adds anything, but just my opinion.
