OK, Im not one to usually use Photoshop so I am not the best. When I saw this challenge I knew I could do something cool in my mind, that was simple and clean. I am not happy with the height of my camera when I took the photo of myself "I feel as though it could have been a little higher." Just to get and even view of things you would expect to see being that tall, shooting somewhat down. I wont claim this has a deep meaning of any kind. It is simply me leaning on an object that has that has almost always been my passion. The metadata for the Image of me Is different then the image of the camera: F 4.5 Shtr 1/20 ISO 640. If I had to re do the image I would shoot the camera with a smaller aperture. I feel where I placed myself in the image (best suited in my mind) is where the image becomes a bit fuzzy. Light source for the camera simple Pixar style lamp, warm bulb. Image of me, ceiling light, harsh blue.

Nice shot. Great use of shallow depth of field.

This is a very cool idea--a few things in my opinion might have made it stronger: there's clutter in the background that subtracts from your shot, and the brightness and white balance on your miniature person doesn't match its surroundings. The shadows are pretty good, especially against the camera. Neat brownie camera BTW!
