    Hi James.
    The first image of the forks is my favourite. It's clean and simple.
    The only thing that distracts from the image is the ghosting in the reflection of the forks.
    Worth working on.
    All the best. Greg

    Agree with Greg - the forks are my favourite. I also like the composition of the cut bread. There is also a nice selection of textures in this image that make it interesting for me.
    regards

    Very cool! I like them all!

    the ghosting should be easy enough to photoshop out if you wanted to take the time.

    A close crop of the "diamond" shape created by the interlocking forks would be cool too!

    ooooh, the possibilities . . . .

    I really like the ideas in the first two images.

    I especially like that the shape of the tabletop in the second image complements the shape of the bread. That image would be perfect for me if the background had warm tones to complement the tones in the bread.

    The mirror idea and the patterns it creates in the first image are so terrific that I'm completely jealous that I didn't think of the concept myself. However, I would like to see the distracting shadows eliminated, especially the shadows in the top right corner.

    Most shiny metal seems to be more appealing in a photograph if it is bright. Considering that the forks include curvature, not all parts of them have to be bright but I think the image would be improved if more parts of them were bright. You might be interested in the exercise that I conducted that deals with how to control that: Lighting really makes a difference!

    Hi all
    Many thanks for your comments and views,

    I have to confess though that the concept with the forks was not my idea, this was something i saw in a magazine but done completley different to mine and (the guy in the mag had made a pattern effect in cs5 which was outstanding, just wish he had explained how he had done it) i was just trying to replicate it...
    i only have a simple setup...canon eos 350d with built in flash and 1 slave flash and a light tent...plus a just delivered Raynox DCR-250 adapter
    just love to play about with things...
