My husband is not happy with this and I should probably trust his taste, since the last Woody I entered failed terribly. But I woke up with this idea on my mind Sat morning and could not get it out of my mind; I tried some angels against different white backgrounds and teddy bears as well. So, I came back to this set up. Even if it bombs in a bad way, I at least was able to go express my crazy creativeness. One mans treasure could be others junk and visa versa. The beauty of imagination and the freedom to convey it is what art can be.
Processing; tint, adjust contrast, dodge egg so it would not be so dark (brown eggs are the only eggs I buy, clone a tad bit of cloth to fade out a wrinkle, crop and size.

My husband threatened to throw this "PLASTIC" Woody away, then said, "I guess I'll have to get you a new "REAL WOODY" for Christmas. So a real woody is on my Christmas list. Don't suppose it will make my photos any better with the tremendously low scores I seem to continue to get. Even so, if I made one person laugh with this little set up then I accomplished the one thing I set out to do, against my husband warning that this will not help my average. The white balance is different platters with various shades of white. Challenge did not say had to have a solid white or bright white background.
Lesson learned, go with the flow if a previous challenge has set a precedent.
side thought; Interesting to see so many bright on white and black on white scoring so well.
second side thougth; There seems to be a few mean commenters out there, so my very sensitive side is being provoked to grow much stronger. Not that that is a bad thing. I just hope I do not become to mean in the process.

Great title and concept. I think you have too many shades of white in the background. Probably just lighting differences, but I find it distracts from the subject(s).

Cute. Any other time this would probably do a little better. In this challenge I think the whites should be more luminous than the subject. JMO of course. Best of luck to you in the challenge.
