Not completely satisfied w/ this one, but it was fun giving it a try... I'm probably not the best model to portray a marionette as I'm 6'8"... ah well.

Great lighting, but I wish the ties were closer to the body to make it look a bit neater.

Love the idea, great capture and the light works amazingly. I hope you don't get low scores because of the threads.

LOL....love the concept. That's what my husband says he is in his job! ;) Must have taken some setup time to get this one. But, didn't they say that actual threads shouldn't be used in the shot? Still, I like this shot. 8

Clever! Funny. Lines should be tighter around arms and head, leaving them loose looks like a noose and creeps me out. Top 15 for sure.
