Peter welcome back to the fray!!!!

I love the idea and the 'tear' rolling down the face of the lead peep is wonderful and gives what is essentially a funny shot a touch of melancholy

If I am being honest for my taste the lighting is a litte harsh but not terribly so

Great leading diagonal as well

Great studio shot that needed alot more studying. I think this got cheated by the speed voters. I think this should have scored alot higher than it did. I am betting most didnt see the tear drop.

Good to have you back.

You let him warn them? And he's crying. I believe the kinder thing is just eat the entire Peep in one bite, out of sight of the rest, so all they know is he's gone to another place and he doesn't suffer too long. After viewing entries like this I am becoming Convinced we need a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Peeps!
