Last minute idea. Took this in my room. Used a single 550EX flash and a transmitter. It took some time getting the flash into a good position to get that dark area at the top. Taped the toothbrushes and fork to a box. Two A4 yellow papers stuck on a cardboard. Used a 100mm F/2.8 Macro Lense. First I went for a white background but thought it would look more intereseting with a yellow one. Wish i could have removed some sensor dirt :) Thanks to Heiğa (heida) for the title.

Very clever. Love the minimalistic feel to this image. Nice yellow tone and I love how the light fades upwards.

I love this photo. That fork really looks like it should be saying "where am I?" I actually feel bad for this fork. You have conveyed a feeling to me with 3 toothbrushes and a fork. You are either an excellent photographer or I am emotionally retarded.
Great job.

Really nice silhouette, and creative, humorous answer to the challenge.

3 toothbrushes and a fork well it is out of place but hardly imaginative

Strong silhouettes and nice background, especially the gradient. The subject isn't as interesting as it could be, but it ceratinly fits the challenge. The brush on the right should allow more light between the bristles.

Nice shot, but I'm not too keen on the black across the top.

Nice use of a gradient for your backdrop.

clever. interesting lighting and silhouettes,

very very funny.. especially with that title... i would have maybe chose a warmer color rather then yellow.. and showed more of the fork and brushes, maybe lowered a bit my crop from top... good luck

great job-can't complain about it

Great silhouette. Almost like that middle toothbrush is just staring at the fork!

The silouette-effect is really great! It's a very clever photo.
