Very well done. The figures don't quite fit if you stop to think and look closely, but it's close. I thought they were real people when I looked at the thumbnail!

Good artistic composition. very creative. Evokes age easily. Depth of field effectively isolates subject. high marks.

this is an interesting photo.. i'm not sure exactly how to take it.. lol... I'm assuming that the background is a prop photo? the only bit there that bugs me a little is the white spot in the upper left corner... - good shot :) - jmsetzler

I really love this, the way that it's a model yet does have an air of reality and grittiness to it. I like the composition too. It just clicks for me.

I liked it!!

How wise you were to use that background just so. It adds a wonderful sense of place which makes me as a viewer understand the antique soldiers and simultaneously appreciate their age.

very intresting shot.
08/07/2002 09:44:00 PM
wished the background were in focus - the sculptures seem to pop out of place

This is a wonderful image… Well thought out and very original, it's eye catching and it meets the challenge with aplomb. (10) Good luck…

Evocative on several levels. Nice.

Lovely choice of subject and a great choice of angle setting them on the road. Excellent picture all round.

good composition and use of greyscale

Is that background live or is it a photograph itself? The statues/figurines are interesting and mostly in focus (the focus seems to be centered toward the bandaged figure on the left).

this is a very moody image and the limited depth of field works well here. nicely done. ~mcmurma

very creative. not sure how this was done. looks like a photo was placed behind the figures. however it was done it is a very cool image. great in b&w. would love to see more photography like this. this is art :) i would hang this on my wall.

Very nice.. it tells a story in a beautiful way. I like the rich black and white.
08/06/2002 08:09:00 AM
I just love the mood in this. It's really lovely.

very interesting use of old toy soliders. background makes it even more interesting.
08/05/2002 11:58:00 AM
Old toy soldiers in a story,nice setup!!!
08/05/2002 11:44:00 AM
I had to revisit this one. It needed a higher score. Up to a 9 now... Great choice. I like the way you did this. Focus is good. Lighting is good.
08/05/2002 09:37:00 AM
Macro of toy?? Very well executed!
08/05/2002 05:44:00 AM
Everything thing looks good, only thing I would change, and remember this is just me, I would have them seem to be walking down the street instead of the yard.
08/05/2002 02:02:00 AM
This is pretty cool. Is it a statue? Is the background real or fake? I have too many questions, dont I?
