This is definately a childs room. The black window on the left is very distracting. I would have taken the shot from a different angle to remove it. 5.

Definately represents childhood. It kind of looks like it was composed quickly. I think it would have more visual impact if the animals/toys were sitting up straight and easier to see. there are a few toys in the middle at the bottom that are kind of hard to tell what they are. The little fairey blends in with the ride on toy making her hard to see, and I can't tell what she's laying on at all. I know where you were going with the baby's room being the background, but I would also like to see this on a plain background for comparrison. The lighting is great. you did a great job of keeping reflection and glare off the objects. Sometimes, that's the hardest part. Good luck in the challenge.

What a colourful bunch ! I would have tried to isolate the toys from the background which distracts, a sheet of some kind, black maybe to insist on the colours (although lots of people don't like black).

Garage sale. :-) This photo's organization didn't move me very much. The idea of a toys still life is certainly a fine one, but I found the way they were grouped didn't do much for the photo. The items in the background are distracting, and the lighting seems to come entirely from the flash; perhaps different light source would have added mood to the the photo.

Colourful pile of toys but the background doesn't add to the photo, especially the large black window, the cropped flowerpot on the wall or the thing on the pillow.
PS That yello ducky is sooo cute!

Wonderful colors.

get closer to the toys and choose a more interesting angle instead of straight front.
