The backdrop is a little busy for me. 5.

Hmm it looks like you just used a stuffed animal because children were not allowed. The background is not chosen very well. It merges with the cloths of the subject and is too distracting in my opinion. Also the saturation (esp. of the red colour) is a bit too much.

Very busy with too many patterns. I like it anyway and it meets the challenge. Cute!

Nice framing and plently of light but that background is very busy. - floyd

The doll almost gets lost in the photo... the cloth behind it is too busy.

I'd have preferred to see this taken on a plain background. All the patterns are really confusing.

If you were going for the look that everything in this photo clashes, then great job. This is one busy photo. So many different patterns. The old looking dog is a nice touch. The dress up idea definately portrays childhood nicely. Angle and placemnt are good. Good luck in the challenge.

I think the background is a little busy and makes the shot feel flat. If it were blurred somehow it might work better.

I think partly the background makes this more interesting than many of the toy shots this week, but I also like the red leatherette ear, the matching bracelet and the fantastic pearls. Also like the angle he/ she is lying at within the frame.
Outside of the challenge would crop a little off the top to even out the width of background at each side.

This is an interesting child's toy :) I love the setup and composition here, but the background material takes away a lot of contrast from your subject. The colors and patterns on the background could be considered quite distracting from the subject. This toy, possibly, could have been more effectively photographed on a neutral background?? Good shot :) - jmsetzler

Might have been better against a less detailed background.

thats very cute and colorfull
08/26/2002 06:37:00 PM
and I thought women had more fashion than that nice picture
08/26/2002 05:45:00 PM
Nice textures!
08/26/2002 11:38:00 AM
cute. background is a bit busy though and detracts.
08/26/2002 11:31:00 AM
Whaaaa! This is so cute. My only negitive comment is that the prints are so busy and that there are so many!! Still it's sure a cute idea and the red really sets this off. I like it and it's in focus. Good job. Score 7 Kee

Subject is lost in the background

This is very busy with all the different colors and fabric patterns and jewelry. It makes it hard for the eye to focus on anything. Journey
