I predict this will get slammed for not being interesting nor creative, per the challenge details. I'd originally wanted to show wall*e doing something mischievous, but couldn't get the right combination of scale, DOF and detail to convey/portray that intent. One shot had him holding a tube of Super Glue in front of my netbook, shot from behind wall*e, with little adhesive droplets on the keys of the keyboard ... as if he was playing a practical joke. I couldn't get it to work. :-/

Oh well ... let the 3s and 4s begin! :)

*post challenge*

Wow! Thank you all. So unexpected.

At one point my score was a PB 7.3 (well into voting) and I couldn't believe that either. I truly expected this to pull in a 5.5 or so, not because of the technicals ... but the challenge details.

Thanks for all the comments and favs!

My first blue ... woohoo!!!
