The forks are actually silver. THe incandescent light, combined with the long exposure tinted them golden and the blue backdrop purple. I decided not to adjust the white balance.

Hopefully, people won't DNMC this entry! :)

I REALLY thought this would have done better. :(

Love how the lighting and the long shutter caused the colors to change. Very interesting!

LOL - 5.70 isn't bad for a score!

This is a fun image and gave me a big smile when I saw it.

Back in August '07, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' LittleGett ran a side challenge that featured a participant's willingness to take on one fork for an entire month. 30 pics of forks was a daunting challenge and gave me new respect for this useful instrument.

You've done a fine job here.

Interesting way of viewing a fork, I would have liked the prongs in front to be the focal point

I like the reflections on the metal and the contrast with the background.

I wish you had rotated it a little so it was more symmetrical.
