In "my day" Legos were just blocks. Do you have any of the computer/robot kits yet?

I think that this may be better in color. Neat idea though.

great

I like this a lot though I am not sure I can explain why - I set it at 7 but it stood out from all my other 7s and I realised it's up with my 8s.
I like the dark background - very much the no atmosphere = black space sky...
I love the light and shadow across the lego floor - what a wonderful texture... and the composition with the man central but the photo not because of the "moon rock stuff" and his shadow...
I'd like just a very little more light on him and everything else just as it is...

Looks like it should have been tilted a tad to the left. Nice Shot Jacko. 7

Well taken, kinda fun, but (I'm sorry) it doesn't have a lot of interest. 6 Swash

Lol, I got a good laugh out of this photo (I mean this in a good way). Very original and inventive perspective on the topic.

I used to have these same Legos as kids. I think my brother inherited them from "our" collection though admittedly they mostly were his. I'm not wild about the whole idea. I don't know if I'd have used B&W here either, but I don't think it hurts the shot too much. DOF is great. Framing is not IMO and maybe this shot would've been helped out some with something else in it, like a moon buggy or his means of transport to the moon. Good Luck - Inspzil

Good choice using grayscale. Good lighting too.

cute....

Clever & comical title, lighting and focus works well, and I think you made the right decision having it in black and white. Nice shot!

Love it! Great DOF and a great subject. I am trying to decide if this is technology because of the science angle, or the evolving technology of toys. Either way, I guess it fits the challenge topic.

The photo is good, very good use of side light. The message may be a bit weak.

You made my day! I love it. I needed that! Simplicity. Just a tad to dark in the backbround and could be sharper in the foreground. But I LOVE IT! PTL

Maybe not far from the truth! :)

Excellent concept/image. One of the few of the technology shots that really stand out.

Hehe Another one that made me laugh! Great shadow on the Lego guy. But tell me, how did you get to the moon to take this shot? ;)
