This proved to be an interesting challenge - I had a hard time finding a white surface with no texture. In the end, I had to use a bevelled surface, which meant one tine didn't touch the surface, but otherwise worked pretty well. If only I could have dodged and burned... :)

The shadows and the lighting make this one really interesting for me. Took a couple of seconds to figure out what it was as well, which held my interest. It's just a shame that the farthest prong isn't also touching the surface, but I can see that's just the shape of the fork.

hmm interesting. More contrast may have helped bring out the lines. Like this shot.
