Great work in the composition, and deserved higher.

And this is from the guy who was complaining earlier in the year that he sucks at photography. Wish I sucked like that! Curious how much work went into both the cutout and setting up the shot. Probably a lot.

That must have taken forever to put together! I like the backlight. This would have been nice as a silhouette, too, but I think for this challenge you did the right thing to light the cardboard well enough for us to see some cardboard-y details.

How long did this take to sey-up? Stunning idea, yet so simple, but extremely creative.

indeed, boxes made of cardboard used here - inventive use of material - nice background and it makes for a pleasing image. Well done.
