Had fun with this one. Pretty cheesy, but I think that it was pulled off OK. I expect about a 5.4.

Shot at 55mm with the Kit lens, tripod, bounced 550ex and east facing window light. Original shot is considerably darker and I used curves and levels extensively. Also did a lot of cloning on the dunce cap, which by the time I was finished had so much gunk on it that it looked fairly bad.

34th is a great overall placement, but I thought this shot would do even better. This is a very creative setup and one of my favorite images from this challenge.

There are no tacks in this image. ;) Wish the DOF was greater so the ones in back were in better focus. Like the concept. Background a little harsh. 7
