In this photo I tried to turn something normal, like spoon and fork into a picture that needs a few seconds to be understood.

Most important was the lightning that was shot through an aluminium sheet from underneath the subject. This created a reflection on the silver spoon that made it look like an UFO :)

Later i just turned the white balance a bit cooler and did some color grading.

This is world class still life. I love it when it takes you a few minutes to decipher what the objects actually are. At first glance it looks futuristic, alien even. But its simplicity renders it graceful.

Yeah, it took me a minute to figure out what it was too, that's what makes it so great.

Great great great *2

Absolutely great!

I love this - it's given me inspiration to look for similar effects in everyday items - particularly with strong reflections.

Stunning photo.. amazing extension of creativity

This is a clear example os seeing beyond everything, beyond the escence of it. Love this so much!!!!

thank u all! :)

Reminds me more of a fly than a UFO but excellent shot non the less.

Thought this was a 3D render, nice work mate spot on.

Amazing shot. Love it.

very cool picture

Nice abstract approach on common items. At first it looked like a high-tech Spider-man logo or a macro shot of a fly's head. Great shot!

nice shot

Have just seen this image - it's fantastic. Looks like a head-on macro of a futuristic fly. Inspires me to experiment with my old light-box.
