this could have been awinner if you had put it in place of lense of eye.
Imagine that.

My favorite! I don't know what the knife of this set looks like, but I wonder if it would have added to the photo if it were the only knife, replacing the spoon, at the point of the heart. Possibly elongating the outside shape more like a heart also. Still a 10.

Very cool! Good contrast, and I love the concept. I hope setup didn't take forever! :) GL

A very inviting and well done set up, the lighting is fine and the detail good throughout. Looks like something you might see at a wedding.

Cool setup. Photo is good too. This needs to be on a poster in a kitchen shop somewhere.

Excellent. Good lightning creating nice reflections, and the heart shape is a nice touch.

Very clever and well executed. And a knife in the heart if the food doesn't work either.

That is just insanely clever! Great job! Maybe you could use an appropriate red background to emphasize the heart?

8 - Very good. Well done if this is original. Criticism; not much, the shadowing and toning works well. Perhaps a slight variation in the toning (not sure) to add more 'depth' here, especially to bring out the heart at the center, may have made this even better in my opinion. Maybe it is just a lighting issue, which I imagine was difficult to control and retain a balance in that center.
