So many people commented on how Woody was out of focus. Yes,I agree, but at the time of this shot I was focusing on trying to bring the OZ characters to life, although I did not have any props/wire etc to pose them better. Tinman is supposed to be looking directly at slipper and he is making the comment. Lion is looking like a deer in the headlights and Scarecrow is looking at Cindy Woody.(someone commented on Woodyrella, I like that better). Woody had his back to camera and was supposed to be as if he landed in the wrong fairytale world, hence the single red slipper and comment. The next day while at work, I thought of setting up a backdrop and bring the red slipper and woody more in focus since the title is "WOODY", but I was too late with getting photo sized and missed deadline by a few minutes.

I did not take advantage of ADVANCED EDIT on this.

Your woody is out of focus and it's even the center of the shot. It looks like you didn't even attempt to set the toys of in a certain way.

Took me a minute to figure out the mixed "fairy tale" references. Unfortunately, Woody is out of focus. The reflections in the table are a little distracting as well.

Woody is out of focus, did you intend this?

Creative and unique idea! Lighting and DOF could be improved a bit.

Fun idea. But the focus is on everything But the woodie. Doesn't hold appeal for me that way. I do like the reflection on the ground. maybe concentrate more on capturing the refections and the woodie in focus and everything else will come into play.

I'd like this more if Woody was in focus.

Wizard of Woodyrella? Cute! Love all the characters, but Cindy needs to be a bit sharper focus for the story. Tinman's adorable!

I wish Woody and the slipper were in better focus. Fun idea!

Great idea and pretty good posing of figures. Looks like back focus on the lion. Focus on woody's shoes would help with DOF to include all of woody.
More visible shoes and better lighting for shoes would help.

this is very grainy.

Cindy Woody is a bit blurred and burned with the flash. Maybe try different lighting techniques. You can always use white balance to correct for other light sources.

There isn't great compositional balance in this photo. The main subject is out of focus and the crop isn't tight enough to provide the emotion / balance that the image needs. Also, it is quite hard to find the slipper, its a little dark.

Would like to have woody in focus more as currently he is the last thing the eyes are drawn to.

Cute idea but I'd like to see more DOF so Woody was in focus.

I like the idea of this photograph, but being the woody the main subject of the picture the soft focus does not works here IMO.
