Good effort. Two points, - tp close to the right edge, and the tine tips are not in focus.

In the mod Ive exaggerarted sharpening, apart from adding space on the right, to show clearly, on the linen cloth, exactly where the area of focus was. Its just missed the fork tips.

So, an idea for a kitchen project. Two forks, on their backs, tines facing each other. Push them together so the tines are interlaced; then carefully place an egg (in the shell) on the crossed tines, so they support the egg.

Give it a go.

The composition, crop, light, tones and atmosphere are really good. I love that long, curving shadow across the fabric, and the fact that it's drifting leftwards adds a lot. Rightwards would be positive, prosaic. This gives a rather wistful feel. But as Willie says this really needs to be sharp on the tips of the fork tines and it isn't. With close-up wide aperture, precise focusing is critical. Get it right in the camera.

Bob Carlos Clarke had taken shots of forks and spoons at the period of contempating suicide. I hope your turn to kitchen stuff has not such undertones.

I find your picture has some beautiful details. But before giving you the details I shall speak of something I don't find appealing and I shall make a suggestion. The light used gives a yellow glow. The fork is made of stainless steel, it's silver-ish if we can describe it like that; To eliminate the yellow glow, turn the picture to black and white.

What I liked is the tiny pattern detail depicted on the tablecloth. I hope it will appear stronger with the conversion to black and white. I do not know how your camera depicts the focus points. It would be better to turn to manual focusing, or review on the back screen while composing. Because the tips of the fork are tiny, place the fork on the tablecloth and put a printed piece of paper in front of it, a small one like a tiny calendar page 3cmx2cm.
Focus on that, lock the distance and before you shoot, take off the paper (my girlfriend tells me I'm a genius).

I like how the shadow goes to the left bottom crner, good detail this one.

Suggestions for kitchen stuff contain food (fruits and vegetables row), still nature with salt and pepper dispensers, toothpicks, glasses, liquid (water and food colouring, or oil).

Have fun
