Well done Pat great brushwork and the white of the egg is just right, it looks real.

Really something different... The thickness of the eggshell is just accurate. I like this detail.

Wow! Great textures!!!! Really another giant leap forward.

My only suggestion would be to be mindful of the edge of the eggshell along the crack. It's pretty wide for such a thing material, and you also could consider the direction of the edges along that crack, ie. how are each angled toward the light source in the pic. Besides all that, it's more interesting artistically and usually naturally accurate to vary your edges. It sits back into the picture like singers in a chorus where it doesn't jump out. And the star of this show isn't the edge of the shell.

But for the rest of it, I love the reflections how you did them. Really the right amount. And their placement is great. I really like the painterly character of this. What is extra cool is that you managed to nail the various surfaces in a way where the broad strokes unify the whole picture in a single artistic vision. The directions of the strokes are great. The shapes, plate and egg bits are very good. It reads beautifully. ;););)
