    Not a very artistic photo, but a very very great capture. I love the simplicity, innocence and humor contained in this shot. Composition wise, considering how childish the concept is, this shot is perfect. The depth of focus is well played out and the detail is brilliant. The only suggestion i could possibly giv to this is to put through a photoshop filter to give it an old school 50s horror flick feel to it, i think that it would increase the strength of the comedy in this shot, without losing too much detail, great job!

    This made me laugh out loud so for that reason alone it is a great photograph. I believe that good photography evokes emotion in the viewer. I like the framing and the DoF but I donlt want to focus on the details. What makes this shot is the element of fun and that it doesn't take itself too seriously. Faved!

    Here's a photo I've been really looking forward to commenting on...
    This is really fun and imaginative. Great Little Story here...
    Only thing is what's she doing on a surfboard? :-)

    I can just see a film script being written up from this one...
    Title: "Barbie in the Attack of the Evil Foot". She certainly wouldn't want that cracked skin on her feet. ;-)

    There is really nothing to criticise here, like others have said, the DoF works really well to give an impression of scale and the placement of the figurine is perfect to give us the impression that she is slowly being crushed, but resisting with all her strength.
    I don't think the missing bit of the toe matters at all.

    All in all a great comedy photo, well though out and created. Great Job

    Very creative and entertaining shot. The DoF really draws the attention to the subject. The perspective really makes thge shot great.

    Ohhhh... I see, this isn't your foot, is it? I was about to begin furiously writing questions such as, "How on earth did you keep your foot positioned as you reached down to photograph this?", "If you didn't do that, did you set your camera's timer?", "How did you compose this without looking at it?", etc. Now, I see that it's not your foot after all...

    Did Keri know that her foot would be described as "Titanic" when you took this photo? ;)

    I think it's a fun shot. It made me smile.

    The one thing about this shot that I would like to see done differently would be a recrop so that the tip of the big toe would not be cropped off. Otherwise, I think the depth of field, focus and coloring are nice.

    Lol I'm sorry but this looks awfully similar to a real life portrait I just commented on - B Stahl's entry that is. They even have the same colored top on, and that bleach blond hair =D I wonder if you guys planned it ahead?

    Anyhoo, I'm very glad that this is my last picture to comment on. I will like to end this truly laughing, and this picture is just what I needed to do just that. It is a lighthearted, fun photograph.

    In that regard, I will try not to pick and dissect this concerning the aesthetics! I can clearly see that this is intended more as a comic relief or a sort, I am not mistaken. I mean how serious would you want to be with a B movie miniature persona -D

    First of all, the concept you have here is great. I am more of a random photo taker, very rarely do I plan out a shoot, or set it up to my liking before capturing it. So I think your conception came to light very well here, so whenever the idea had struck, I'm just very glad it did.

    The dof is great here, the background beautifully blurred, and the angle is pretty powerful too.

    Two things I took issue with here are both in concern to the framing. Firstly, I would frame this slightly to the right, or crop a bit of it from the left. The reason being, there is a lighter tone at the extreme left (top) that differs from the greener shade surrounding and offsets the framing. Also, like others I really would have liked to see the whole feet in frame. I don't like the fact the big toe got cut off, other than that, this really is a cute and funny shot.

    I hope you do make a series out of these, would be fun to watch :-)

    The hilarity of the photo, the depth of field, bokeh, detail in the foot, and the all around set up (colors, composition, etc)

    I really like this photograph. It's fun, it's entertaining, it's "simple" (not an insane complex shot with multitudes of lights and mirrors). It knows exactly what it wants to portray and does it in a fully bokeh-ish/colorfied hysterical way.

    It's a really creative point of view and a really creative idea. The "toy" was chosen perfectly for this type of shot too, I feel as though there is actual emotion there. Great job.

    I liked...

    The entire concept of the photograph. It makes me remember my childhood days when i used to play with GI-Joe and stuff like that. The colors are subtle and smooth.

    I Disliked...

    1. You really need to take care of your feet!!
    2. The DOF is not very shallow you could've used a little larger aperture on it to make the subject really stand out.

    Etc....

    The photograph says a lot about your personality. You still have the kid alive in you :-) keep that up.

    Will expect more good photographs from you soon.

    This is a very comincal shot. I think it has alot of symbolism about women as well.

    In one way it is funny and in another it could be very powerful against
    "the man" continuing the keep people down.

    From a technical point of view the photo has a fabulous perspective. I think the colour is good, but could be improved to have some vibrance. The DOF is well done!

    As mentioned you should treat the foot to a fabulous pedicure and treat the little woman to a fabulous relaxing bath.

    She is such a strong women to stop the power of Big Foot. Lol

    plus: ___Fun shot and words :-) I particularly liked the DoF on this - it covers the action in detail - perfectly.
    minus: ___the clipped big toe is a bit lame :-) but other than that, for a non studio shot, it's really very good.

    So why not let Kerizilla live up to her name and have her crush a puny little toy city next? :D
