    It's a work of art. I like how the BG fades in (blurs) nicely.

Thanks Les, Joy and Kara! I wanted to catch a half-abstract fork and give an icy/bluish/metallic feeling to the picture.

Man... Can I call a great shot or what?... The other day at 101 I said I think this shot is going to be a finalist... And here it is... In even a bigger position than finalist... Remember, there are over 850 finalists a month... Only 28 POTD for Feb....

Congrats my friend...
