I love imperfection..the dirty windows are what make this work for me. I placed the dollhouse in front of some windows to get natural light and simply clicked while she played..she posed for a couple, and in those her eyes are up etc., but they look too set-up and so didn't really interest me.

What a clever shot this is. A total reverse on the norm. Makes you wonder what it must be like for thos little guys living in the dolls' house - or for what it's like to be the small animals in a zoo with people walking past looking in on you.

Hi bucket. Finally got around to looking at some images from this challenge. I didn't get a chance to vote in this one but I can certainly understand why it ribboned. Glad to see that the voters can appreciate images like this. A++

Congrats for your ribbon! Your photo was among my top three fav!

I totally agree with you that the dirty windows and the contrast in focus created with the missing window and the small gap really add so much to this image.

Great work as always.

Congratulations.

Fantastic viewpoint spoiled only a little by some movement - not so much that it ruins it though.

Nice idea. Wish for clear, visible face and eyes - too bad the eyes aren't visible through a lowered window.

I like the perspective from inside the doll house. The glazed windows add a heightened mystery to who is seen through the open pane. Nicely done

This caught my eye. She looks like a giant! :) Very cute idea and nice lighting. I wonder if the window panes being clean would have been better? I don't know...this intrigues me.
