This is an interesting optical illusion. When I first looked at it I saw white plastic spoons, then spoons and forks, then I finally saw the forks. Love the light in this. But I'm sure many, many people have had wonderful things to say about your image.

That is just far too cool, JR! From the thread that BeeCee started here. Kudos! Well deserving of the Blue.

You might consider adding that to the image Description above - I'm sure that most people missed it... and it's a key element.

This was my number one.... I think its interesting how simple this photograph is (few elements, high contrasting tones, almost abstract) yet how striking of an image it is.

Sort of reminds me of Pink Floyd's The Wall. I half expect the tines to start marching. This is one of my top 3 for this contest.
