Post Your Non-Insect Macro Photos

Very cool. What was the setup for this? I'm assuming a mirror surface and some kind of light source from the left?
Wow, thank you!

The setup was polished black acrylic on the bottom with a white nylon background sheet offset from the table by about 12 inches. The light source was a small fluorescent photo lamp placed on the floor and bounced off the sheet towards the forks. Black acrylic gives a good reflection, but dust has to be removed with a static free cloth before setup. Even then, I spent a fair amount of time removing dust from the acrylic in post.

I give you lots of credit. Reflections are usually hard enough to deal with on their own, but the dust on a black surface complicates things further. Well done (y)
