A wonderful still life composition in its own right and the additional surreal melon from the globe is like a dip into another part of our world. 10/10

I love the composition. Well conceived and executed. The more I look at it, the more it intrigues me. I might have reduced the highlights on the underside of the fork a bit to more closely match the soft lighting effect of the overall scene. Just an observation, not a criticism. Enthusiastically nominated!
