Lit with 2 flashes- one 45 degree left, the other 45 degree right. Shot onto plain white paper.

Cropped, levels, dodge/burn, USM, resize, SFW.

Well, I would have liked to have maybe gone for a higher angle so you could see the pieces a bit more to give the impression that the spoon was standing out, or maybe have turned the spoon around, but then the DOF would have been all off... anyways, it was intersting to do and by the time i'd thought about how to improve it, my stuff was all packed away. Maybe next time.

I predict a good ol' 5.9.

There appears to be a slight color cast in the shadows.

Very neat. I like the opposing curve in the handle of the spoon as well.

Interesting use of several light sources. The silverware itself I am not thrilled with the appearance of, but the shadowplay is great.

A cleaver use of light and shadow creating great contrast. It took me a while to realise that there was a spoon in with the forks so I hope you werent' trying to create a contrast in shapes as it for me it wasn't immediately evident. I guess that probably makes it even better.
