The Invaders (The Twilight Zone) - Closing Narrative


"These are the invaders, the tiny beings from the tiny place called Earth, who would take the giant step across the sky to the question marks that sparkle and beckon from the vastness of the universe only to be imagined. The invaders, who found out that a one-way ticket to the stars beyond has the ultimate price tag. And we have just seen it entered in a ledger that covers all the transactions of the universe, a bill stamped 'paid in full,' and to be found, on file, in the Twilight Zone."

This had your name all over it. Great lighting and overall execution - has that Twilight Zone look and vibe, even if one didn't know of the episode. Congrats on 5th!

Definitely my favorite of all the TZ's.
The only way I can see this image improved is if the mini figure was a bit more defined as an astronaut instead of Gumby.

I wouldn't have thought that I'd go for a pet-shot for this challenge, but you really made this one work very well.
Your light's a little harsh, but I love the idea and the angle/perspective. 8

LOL- I guess this is a cat encountering an alien spacecraft? I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2008 08:11:18 AM
is this where the giant cat finds the ufo or where the normal cat finds the miniature ufo

"And so the aliens sent out a Diplomatic Envoy to Earth to establish relations. Sadly, Gumby never returned to his home planet and the aliens began to prepare for war!"

I like this. The blown out highlight in the left is not bothersome to the overall image. 8
