nice concept, but wish more focus was given to the subject.

The focus and lighting seem to be off.

Unfortunately blurry, lacking contrast and the subject is so small in the image that it's drowned out by the background.

Not sure how you could have improved on this with the particular layout of shot, maybe moved closer to the spoon and zoomed in on it more so it fill the frame a bit, but to be honest I think the idea was the problem as it was always giong to be extremely difficult to really pull it off.

I did something like this for the recent self-portrait side challenge. I don't think it really works well. Mine didn't either. *sigh*
Your spoon and image are much better than mine... but the background is killing this, I fear. Perhaps a color... and solid... maybe black to really make the spoon 'pop'?!
