I always thought water and milk shots made a HUGE mess but the honey made an UNSPEAKABLE mess of my kitchen ;-)
I used about two thirds of a bottle of liquid honey and took about 70 shots...

Thanks so much for the comments and great score.

I don't know why I think of the word "classy" when I look at this shot. Maybe because it was taken by you ... a classy lady!

like the gold tone...maybe it is just me and steam of honey that leads to the spoon just looks slightly stiff to me...

Nice black background to make it pop.

lots of spoons in this challenge -- yours is nicely done, though. i like the pinstripe frame around the black background and the off level design

Good overflow, but for me too much 2/3-rule ;o)

This is great! I love the lighting! :)
The only thing I think I would've done differently, is to not have the border..
other than that, great shot! :)

I like how you were able to capture the gold from the honey!

Great light! I just think that the tilt is not ok... it conveys some artificial feeling (because honey would not fall diagonally).

Good choice on the frame I think it complements your composition well.

Nice lighting and background to show off the color of honey, and the pile of honey on the spoon has nice drama, but that drama is so little of the shot and so much is black or spoon that I think a tighter crop would have helped.

nicely composed. the slight rotation is all it needs to make an otherwise simple shot fun to look at.

I think the honey is well lit here. The brightness of the spoon pulls my eye away a bit from the "action" part of the scene, but I think it's well composed. I wonder how it would look straightened? Also, an interesting use of negative space at the top 3/4 of the image. Me likes.

This must get a ribbon.

Great job using some tilt to add an extra sense of dimension to a common photo.

The iconic honey shot.
