I agree with all good words about this photo by other commenters. The lights on dolls' faces make the look alive and expressions are very intriguing. Everyone has own character and story.

The low score, however, may be explained by questionable composition. The dark spot on the top-right looks unnecessary. The center-bottom - I still can't get what is it - could be little lighter or the light could be distributed more evenly.

Overall nice, abstract and symbolic. Good idea and choice of the title.


Many thanks for the comments.

The dark spot and uneven lighting were an attempt to exploit the moving light source element. I probably overdid it. No apologies for the composition though which is deliberately unusual. I don't mind my usual low average score as a few people have enjoyed it and made appreciative comments.

Very interesting point of view. This would be great photo for a children's book. This should have scored higher IMO. Well done.

This is possibly my favorite photo ever! Brilliant perspective. I especially like the "expression" on the doll with the bright light in her face...it's almost as if she's surprised by the light!!! Bravo!

Cute pooh bear favorites! Looks like they ready to play when everyone goes to sleep or out the room, like shows on Nickolodeon with the stuffed animals!

I find the bright light on the one doll distracting.

Great viewpoint - great colour range - possibly a tad more contrast.
Very funny and love the illuminated single face.
