Trying to think outside the box i created this photo using a simple house hold lamp. I was going for an abstract feel to the photo and really wanted to us the curve of the fork with the shadows that were being created.

I used a shallow depth of feel to try and get the emphasis of the photo on the points of the fork and the shadows that were being created.

So simple, yet so striking. And I love very shallow depth of field...

The dof is where you meant it to be and looks OK for that. However, the image lacks impact as the shadows are lacking in contrast, and to my eye the image does not convey any special quality. I think it worthwhile your revisiting it and trying to light it from various angles - checking your screen all the while - and try also to diffuse the light with, say, some tracing paper. If you increase the dof the fork will be less than a faint impression in the out-of-focus area which, I believe, will strengthen the image.

The idea is good but it does lack any impact for me. Needed some dramatic lighting for mono or colour. You may have a dust spot on your sensor, bottom of image so will be at top of sensor. To be fair, you have probably done what you set out to do, just needs something to add that ooomph.

It works very well for me. I might have preferred a tighter crop to add a bit of mystery but I like it.
