Set up my Ninja Turtles that I used to collect when I was younger. Casey Jones was my favorite character so I wanted to focus on him going into the battle.

Would have been better if the focus was in the middle of the photo, on the first few figures facing the camera.

This looks a little too busy for me. Maybe you could have set this up outside or something. 5.

Nice idea, but DOF could be improved.

Great colors, but a little too blurry. You might want to try setting your focus further into the picture before snapping the shutter.

I love the way you set these up, and the depth of field on this shot :). It captures the feelings children have about these types of toys, putting you right down at their level and feeling as though they could come alive and start to fight. Great work :)

focus should have been on the characters facing us
08/28/2002 12:10:00 AM
hey this one is good. A nice background would add some effect

Where's splinter? You have a great display here. The angle is good. I like seeing all the figures. I wish the back were just a bit more in focus, to see some more of the detail. Lighting is great. No distracting glares or reflections. Great job with the photo. Good luck in the challenge.

Just me, but I think it might have been better with the backs of the close toys OoF and the front of the farther toys In focus... Did you try that? I like the color play...

Nice... hope nobody got hurt! :)

I knew the number one cliché this wek would have to be toys. This image has the distinction of being the best of that category.

Like this but wish I wasn't behind everyone. Would like to have more of them facing me. Perhaps if macho man nearest me stays as he is, but the ones infront of him are facing me?
Also not sure what the grey thing rising up at the back in the middle is?
Good lighting and colour.

I would have likes to see the fronts rather than the backs of the figurines.

OK; in my opinion this should be the winner or definitely one of the runner ups. Funny, creative and true to the challenge. Nice job!
08/26/2002 05:52:00 PM
too dark not focused
08/26/2002 03:29:00 PM
Who can forget the TMNTs?
08/26/2002 10:52:00 AM

08/26/2002 07:12:00 AM
