My dad bought me this little doll from Italy when he went there for an hairdressing competition in 1977, I was so thrilled to have a souvenir from my parents birth country. I've kept it ever since, even though it's fallen apart.

Oh by the way this is not garbage to me, I'll never throw her out, just thought it would be great for the challenge.

This beautifully artistic image. It is wonderfully composed and your processing choices were inspired. Love the colors.

Reminds me of my wife's well wore doll I used in the recent Toy Story challenge. She loves that doll while the rest of the family thinks it looks a bit creepy.

This was in my top 3 and I fully expected it to be on the front page. A really great shot.

I do really like this image (gave it a 7). I particularly like the arm in the next valley. I like this image better than my own and it should've finished higher. Well done!

I like this. But then I'm also harmless and bald, so I had to. It's got a strange harmony about it. Thank you.

Nice dof, I like your subject and the dulled colours. The title not so much, the doll isn't exactly bald, the hair is just solid plastic; but that's maybe being pedantic, lol. Overall a very nice shot.

Great lighting effect, I get a sense of lost-ness

The title makes me laugh, superb tones and processing, looks like she's at one with her destiny.

Love the interpretation, and the colour tones too. Well done, it captured my attention, what more do you want from a photograph?
