Spent some time in my daughter's bedroom looking for inspiration. Initially got depressed by the mess, but then found this puppet hanging in a corner and gathering dust.
As I submit this, my daughter is clearing up her room :-)

Nice framing. Seems to lack a little colour. Good subject, though. 7 - floyd

Sweet! Nicely taken and nice angle to the doll (better than face on) and nice position in the frame.

Very nice picture. Very simple idea well executed.

Now if only I had a puppet like that at home I might have come up with something better than my challenge entry!

Black backround was a great choice, leaves the focus on the marionette.

She is very beautiful. I love the colors in her dress. Is that a bunny in her basket? I like how she is set off to the right like that and the background brings her out of the picture perfectly. There is a white spot in the bottom left corner that looks like a blemish. Lighting is great and the angle is also very good. Great job portraying childhood. Good luck in the challenge.

A puppet, how clever. Something I never did quite understand as a child and not as an adult either....except for pinocchio. Good photo with two small exceptions....The small white dot in the background on the lower left and the lighting shine on Mrs. Myrtle's face. =8 syamjonimi ;'-D

This is a really good idea and I like it but the black background makes me want to rush to the next picture. 6.
