It took me about 10 minutes to fix the noodles to the fork... But it was fun, especially for my dog who was allowed to eat all the noodles after the shooting. :)
The background is a basic white fabric, maybe to crinkle, but I thought it would look rustic.

I cropped, changed contrast and brightness.

Thanks to everyone who voted and made comments! Now I see the fork and I really need to smile ... Ugh :P Jup, I´m definitely going to take care of the details when I set up next time :)

Nice presentation overall. Good touch with the greens. Lighting in the bg is a little hot (lower left), the sheet is substantially wrinkled, and something about the fork seems bland (like it's not clean and sparkly). Not trying to be harsh, however, when you have time to setup a "studio" type shot, the details can make or break the final outcome. All JMO of course. Good luck.

Just a little more light on the foreground would make this really pop.

Cramped background is a bit distracting. Tomatoes give nice contrast. The fork looks a bit flat. Maybe deepr DOF would be better.

*not voting as I'm in this challenge-just commenting since I've seen requests for comments in the challenge thread*

Cute idea. Nice colors and great use of DOF. My only nitpicks are I'd like more light on the fork to make it pop from the BG shot and much smoother white BG would help alot.

I feel like the leaves need a slightly crisper focus.
