The realism is staggering! But the concept is sooooo overdone - dare I say cliché? :P

Clever with title...

Lighting is kinda harsh. Maybe if you tried to luminate with candles? Might add a little something to it. Black and white might be neat too.

Ahhh, it made me laugh. Good job. Nice idea, and it it focused well.
08/21/2002 11:52:00 AM
Very clever. :)

Very immaginenative and excellent lighting. Tell that soldier to get the lead out.

Only think missing is the green tent. LOL This is just great! We laughed hard at this. I like the touch of the plant in the background. Gives me the idea that someone's still hiding back there. Very creative and original. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

This is great. I love the title and concept. Great depth and clarity.
08/20/2002 03:24:00 PM
I love it :)
08/20/2002 02:44:00 PM
I love how the guy in the background is throwing his hands up as the mongol descends upon him. LOL Very funny

Interesting idea but not sure whether the pencils are a wall, trees or enemy soldiers! ;)
There are some weird reflections in the background, what are they?

Title sounds like a newspaper headline. Photo could be the visual. Is that a little spider I see on one of the pencils. ;-D
08/19/2002 09:49:00 PM
Very creative. I like the use of the Mongol/Ticonderoga text. The spider on the "wall" is a good touch too. Technically, the lighting is a bit harsh in my opinion.
08/19/2002 06:41:00 PM
chuckle. Very interesting idea, but the lighting could use some improvement. The shadows are distracting. 6 -lennier

It looks like someone had a lot of fun setting this up. (I think I would have ended up playing with it! Lol!) It's a good idea.
08/19/2002 04:03:00 PM
Extremely clever.
08/19/2002 03:50:00 PM
Just a hoot! You have a fun mind. :) Score 7 ~Kee
08/19/2002 03:49:00 PM
Very Creative!!! (7)
08/19/2002 01:41:00 PM
lol! thats a 10 just for the idea
08/19/2002 11:38:00 AM
Absolutely love the fort!!! This is a first class shot, love the idea and I love the way you've done it. Technically, it's well done, and I can't drop points for the shot being a bit dark they may have been attacking at dawn :) Good luck (Easy 10)

this challenge gave you an excuse to play with your army men again, I see. ha ha
08/19/2002 07:09:00 AM
Made me smile. Good imagination and choice of subject. A plain background would've been better.
08/19/2002 06:10:00 AM
very creative

08/19/2002 12:56:00 AM
...as the spider breaches the garrison! :)
