I was suprised and disappointed to find Woody in the midst of this mess just the other morning. When asked why he had acted so untoward, he could only hang his head and moan.

I like it, it tells a story (of a thousand words)

Nice photo, I'm not sure about the angle though. Did you try any with him derailing the train? :) At first I thought bumping the contrast would be good but after trying it I think I like it this way better.

Image seems a little "washed out" IMHO. Also I'd rather see a different DOF so the train was a little more in focus.

Nice idea, but don't care to be looking at the top of the head. There is not much to a woodie I know, but the shape of the head is mroe apealling than just the top. The image also has a haze feel to it. Like the colours should have been brighter but a fog is covering them.

I would like this better if the train were also in focus.

Not sure about the blurring.

Oh dear. Hopefully Woody can things back on track. Nice idea and good execution.

The out of focus background really helps the effect of portraying Woody as a giant. Nice work.

Nice idea. Tighter crop, more DOF, and more saturation would be better. From this perspective, woody's head is too dead on from the top, some angle would be better.

Focus is throwing me off just a bit.

Oh this is nice! Lots of emotion, I really love how you set this up.

The lighting seems a bit flat, but great composition and concept!
