Santa knows better than anyone where to find the naughty girls...

Cute idea. I'd crop the door opening off the left side.

Awesome humor in this photograph, and meets the challenge very well. I do think the focus is a little soft. Some topaz or something like that would have been great for this photo. I also would have tried to get rid of some of that yellow color cast.
This picture made me smile :-) 6

There is something seriously creepy about this image... and I must say, Santa doesn't look the same since going on the Atkins diet... Funny capture though

Really like the concept on this shop but the colors seem very faded. I know that shooting indoors creates these kind of issues, but I wish for brighter/crisper color.
