This probably will not do well because whenever I do photos of toys (beanie babies, matchbox cars, santa) they never score as high as I hope they would. But I love personifying things like this. And I have been wanting to do a picture like this since the Toys Challenge.

These are the pieces from my kid's Clue game. I don't remember what they looked like when I first had the game, but I'm guessing they did not look like people back then lol. And I know they did not look like this! So anyway, it's in for fun. Enjoy!

Sorry I didn't get a chance to vote in this challenge; surely this would have received a high score from me. As others have said, great colors and lighting. Though Colonel Mustard looks a bit oversized...

In my day, if I remember right, the game pieces were the standard colored tokens. It was only the murder instruments that were unique (candlestick, rope, etc.).

I loved this! The lighting and DOF are excellent - what a shame it didn't score higher. I gave it a 7 because of the imaginative quirkiness.

Personally, I think it was the butler in the patry. Very nice lighting and DOF.

This is very good. A little more DOF would have been nice. A seven for you.

I'm not sure why, but there's something about your image that makes me smile. Even though there just plastic game pieces, it's a well composed and colorful shot. Good luck in the challenge. 8

Great colour and contrast with the black background. Lighting and composition are also very good.

Well done!

Were these from a very old set, or a very new one? I've never seen figurines for the Clue game before...I like the shallow DOF here
