I thought about entering this challenge, but I knew I wasn't good enough to do what I envisioned - recreating the scene from 'Close Encounters.' Mashed potato sculpture, anyone?

Yup! That's how it usually works for me -- so I don't expect anything after a happy challenge. And I can definitely live with that :D

I don't think mine will score well, but I like it and enjoyed doing it.

not so bad, but the more important thing is that I really enjoyed very much to shot to this potato! ;-)

italian translation: potato --> patata!

I had hoped I would do a little better, although I know the shot is not perfect. Ah well, the one comment I got was very nice. Trying to comment on every entry in this one, halfway there..

You got mine! Thanks.
I don't expect mine to do well in this challenge. Might be a stretch to get a 5. But I genuinely liked it a lot.
I wonder how many people might be able to guess which is mine. Heh.

Well its a good thing, I would have DNMC'd a Mr. Potato Head toy... however using the pieces on a real potato (as they were originally designed) would have been cool.

Yeah. I was thinking the same. It had a lot of what I expected to see, and a whole lot more of what I didn't expect to see.

Not voted in these yet, but went through them all last night and was not thrilled. Some VERY nice clean creative shots, but a whole lot of spuds. :)

I'm thinking I'll be getting a 3 at best from you.

I went to the toy store looking for the bits as they where when I was a kid, you know the mouth, eyes etc to stick on a real potato and found to my amazement that you can just get it now with a plastic potato already provided. Where´s the fun in that? Found it too expensive and went with another idea. Still... weird evolution of what was once such a wonderful toy.

(I do like the character in the Toy Story series though, how he keeps losing his bits all the time. My daughter thinks that´s hysterical. Although Buzz is still one of my favorite movie-characters of all time. I don´t know why, but I have a soft spot for him, especially in part II when he finds out he can´t really fly. Anyway, this is getting off-topic)

I had 3 ideas. Tried 2 of them and they just didn't work out. Didn't have time to try the 3rd idea (it only came to me yesterday). Surprisingly, none of those ideas are in the challenge.
