Its hard to light a fork! Very reflective---and this one apparently though new is quite scratched!

Nice idea and good focus, but the reflections on the fork are a bit distracting. A color background might be better.

Positives: Good concept and composition.

Negatives: Lighting isn't good. It's too harsh. Bounced/diffused light would have been better.
