Various spices in my wife's measuring spoons. White posterboard background, SB-800 flash w/diffuser and white posterboard to the side as a reflector.

Cropped, levels, contrast, saturation, curves, resize, & USM. I wish I could spot edit, so I could clean up a couple spots, but I can't. :-)

i woulda liked to see the nearest spoon also have a fun bright color in it. Its the closest to the camera, yet it's the darkest color.

This would be a great print, not sure about the pink though, a white set of spoon on the white back ground may have been a better idea. But i,m sure you created with what you had in your hand. Great image, nice compo. Loving it!

Technically good and very colorful, but not much soul to this picture

Creative way to fit the challenge! I like that the measuring spoons are colored instead of the usual white. Also, glad to see you used different spices and herbs to brighten up the shot. Too bad you're not allowed to clone out the bit of lighting flare on some of the spoons. 9.

I like the colors in this very much. The lighting is a little harsh and I'd like to see the setup have a more interesting spice in the spoon in closest focus. I would, perhaps, consider focusing on the second spoon instead of the third.

Best one of the measuring spoon idea.

love the colors but the oh so plain white background and the lack of focus over most of the image are a turnoff

I like this for it's color and design. It needs sharper focusing to make a stronger impact.

Good idea. nice choice of spices for color. Not sure about the pink measuring spoons though.

Handsome pic, nice concept. I'm wishing for a full DOF so they're all in focus.
