Gee, I don't even remember this one, but there's my vote in red (one of the 13). I guess this could also be considered a comment on racism...

How you managed to capture fear in these dolls really surprised me. Great job. :) I wouldn't be surprised to see this get a ribbon.

lOL I like it. Is this lit by light from the left and then a smaller light placed front to the right diagonally?

8 - Good. Good composition and poses. Criticism; not much, looks like a bit of gamma issues in the 'plastic person', but may be intentional.

The plastic object is fearful of the wooden objects. However plastic objects can't have feelings or emotions. I alternate between thinking this is a really good job and thinking it is completely silly. I'll give you a good score now -- it does work well as a cartoon.

nice lighting

Excellent image! This so well portrays what so many other shots in this challenge don't - fear. Excellent poses for the Woodies/Plastics. Very nice overall composition and excellent perspective! Very well done!

Stunning.
We need a Woody fanclub with regular Woody challenges. Ken is NOT allowed to enter any of them.
Well done, you positioned Mr Plastic so well, I am really feeling his fear. 9

I like this one conceptually, very much. It's skilfully lit and composed as well. My only technical nit is that the highlights on the foreground figure are a bit too hot. Given the obvious thought and skill that went into this, I find myself curious why you chose to have the plastic figure OOF and the larger of the wooden ones IN focus.

For me, the illustrated phobia "belongs" to the plastic figure, who fears the wooden ones, so it seems to me HE should be sharply in focus. I believe it would not only be better conceptually, but compositionally as well; I'd like to see the plane of focus dropping off so the taller woody is shilghtly OOF and the smaller woody noticeably so.

Anyway, I like it :-) Feel free to PM me if you're so inclined, I done voted this one :-)

Hey this is good! Might look even more convincing if the plastic guy curls up with his face down on the ground (more agony look). Nice. 9
