Had to come up with something using the Darth Tater.

Stacked 15 lbs of potatoes, used real potatoes for the Darth figures (my wife says I'll eat potato salad for weks!). Lit with a single flash held low to shoot upwards for a Darth like effect.

RAW - increased brightness and saturation for the light saber - toned down hot spots - Neat Image - Save for Web.

Good use of the diagonal and good crisp focus on the front potato guy. Back potato guy needed to be looking a bit more in the forward direction maybe.

Strong creative but a weaker pic. The subject is so cool and the idea so strong, there's probably even more potential than you've already achieved

I think the second "Darth" in the background distracts more than it helps.

Oh no! A multitude of Darths! Good dramatic lighting and DOF. I can't wait to see the world's first potatomation feature!

Funny shot! I like the DOF. I guess it would have looked a bit better if you used more space on the left.

nice job at having a fun stab at the challenge. the two silver things on his mask aren't focused well. too many shaodws for my taste.
