Photographer’s Notes
This is a photo of my wife’s Three Wise Men Figurines. I think it’s a good illustration of the isolation technique but photos of toys and figures rarely score well. Unless voters go soft on seasonal images, this will be lucky to score 5.5.

The composition here feels a little awkward.

I find the shot a little dark, not just in ecposure but all of the colours are dark. I would have liked to have seen at least the subject a bit lighter and more colourful. Good shot but.
