One of my favourite Canadian authors, Douglas Coupland wrote this fine book, which I highly recommend. Although I'm sure he was thinking of the meaning "slaves to Microsoft" when he titled the book, I thought I'd go the other route and represent the title more literally as "very small servants." I hope that all of you got it. :)

Shot pretty much as you see it, with a simple colour balance adjustment.

I wish I could reach in and re-organize the layout of this picture. I like the execution, just not the layout. I'd like to see one shoe about to crush the figure and the other lifting off a crushed figure. But, then that would really throw off the innocence of this picture.

I like it?? I thought I would scream at another figurine, but damn good pose and I like the shadows cast

Very good idea. I like the composition, though the shadows are a bit too much. The smile on the serf's face is hilarious. (BTW, I wish I could have come up with something for "Shampoo Planet.") 7

wonderful book and a funny interpretation of the title. plus, it fits the challenge for a change; this interpretation of the title works even without knowing the Lego connection in the story. nice job!

Nice use of props and unusual composition. Background white paper could do with it's own lighting to render it more purely white.
