This time I used a bent fork and positioned it so that the light would cast the shadow in such a way as if it looked like the shadow of the straight fork had been bent. Angling the shadow and getting the camera in just the right position was difficult.

Great shot... my only suggestion would be to crop the right side just a fraction more so the shadow is not in the picture.

I frankly liked Unbent Shadow a lot better. The shadow here isn't dark enough and the angle of the fork in relation to the shadow isn't convincing.

I just think that this is the embodiment of this genre, this contest. Still life. But still life moves, still life has motion and character and personality. Your picture is so simple but so intriguing. The textures you used are awesome, just awesome. one of the reasons you won't win is because of the writing on the back of the fork, but who am i to judge the whole competition. good luck!
