Daylight from a bay window helped silhouette the little Lego guys. My best shot had a bit of rogue chalk, but none of the shots taken after fixing it had quite the silhouette effect that I was going for.

I tried lots of different angles and moved the characters around, but I found this arrangement and angle closest to the idea in my head.

I have no idea if this will be liked or not, but as usual I had fun creating. The cats also had fun trying to leap on the chalkboard and bat at the Legos during shooting.

Any comments or criticisms are appreciated. If you have a suggestion for what could have made this a stronger image, I thank you in advance for your thoughts.

I actually think this is beautifully exposed. I find it quite stunning. Pictures of little figures don't do well around here, and actually, I usually don't care for them. But there is something quite mesmerizing about this one. Very nicely done.
