Adorable, and exactly the kind of thing that I had in mind when thinking of "Veggie Tales" - a "scene"! Really cute and creative!

A good creative scene but to me, it needs a little crisper focus.

Very creative and I love the color contrast between the potatoes and the greens and blues. The reflection is just awesome. 9

This is very creative and absolutely love this. Can one be more creative than this. With other pics that are very good in this challenge, this takes the cake with the scene and setting prepared entirely from veggies. This pushes it above any of the ones I have seen 8

Very creative.

Great idea and nice job with the veggies. Since the sheep are the main subject it would be nice if they were in focus and the background slightly blurred.
