This is such a cool shot! Sure hope you do a tutorial on it. Your choice of a border color was genius. Can't think of anything else to say except 10.

The first time I saw it, I thought those aren't spoons.

One of my 2 10's for this challenge. Great reflections, what are those... rocks? might have been cool if you had reflected the number 4, but a really cool photo anyway. Good luck!

My favourite this week. Everything is splendid: composition, colours, focus and border. Well done! Hope you win.

What is this reflections of? Flower pot pebbles? This is absolutely beautiful. I just wish you had not cropped of the ends of the two spoons. I would rather you cropped off some of the handles. But I'm still trying to figure out how you did this unless you turned the picture upside down after taking the photo from the bottom side as you held the spoons over a bowl of pebbles. I just think I came up with a way to do it. This is a 10 in my book, and I bet a lot of others too. PTL

This image has a beautiful pleasant warm metal feel. I like that as opposed to the frequent cold metal touch. The pebbles repeat the spoon curves appropriately.The juting corner is an interesting contrasting visual element. There seem to be at least three colours in that polygon bit. Personally I would prefer just one simple tone instead of those three. If you make a roof cone of translucent sheet above your subject this could eliminate all distracting room elements ( if you had wished to do so ) . I also would have eliminated the bluish marbles. Just brownish rocks for my personal tastes. I also like how you overlapped portions of the spoons. In heaven I would magically arrange it so that the dark spoon edge would overlap the adjacent handle but the clear shiny edge between adjacent bowls would not touch. These are just minor suggestions in an otherwise gorgeous image. Thank you for aiming high for originality. ...7

Very neat abstract, almost seems like jellyfish at the bottom of a deep ocean :) jpg could have been at a better quality, or perhaps the artifacts are a product of oversharpening? Can't tell the difference yet... nice shot!
