Actually filling a punishment with this one by including something "homemade by me". heh. So at least something good comes from this shot, even if it isn't the score.

An outtake -
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/62095/120/434605.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/62095/120/434605.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Nicely set up and good DOF. Whether the background is pure white or not - eh, matters not to me. I will say I'm not a huge fan of the "set up" shot (even though I'm guilty as well), but this is pretty well done for what it is. Probably should have done a Christmas theme, though... :-)

From what I can gather by looking at other entries, I think these LOW shots do better when the background is absolutes pure white. This background (and mine too, which scored badly) looks a bit gray, even thought it is actually white. I think that may be what hurt your score. BTW, I like the idea.

Cute, but a bit soft and dark and I don't get the Light on White idea.

Cool idea, but I think it's the technicals that pull this shot down. The color seems a bit flat - it could be more vibrant and/or bright.

I think a more overhead angle and more prcessing would've made this better. I like the setup though
