Nice score 24hrs before rollover, I seriously didn't think it would do this well, pleasantly surprised, it's just a doll by the window, but I do adore the light, and I'm thinking that's the reason for the high score.

So if it ribbons, thanks so much for all your nice comments and votes, much appreciated this, considering my last toy entry failed miserably.

Well what do you know I got my first blue in a very hard challenge to win, WOW!!

Thanks to all those who liked it, and got me this far.

It was sitting on 7.20 just half an hour before rollover, I knew the lower voters would come around and spoil my fun, hehe!

Oh yeah I nearly didn't enter this, I was so close to pulling it out, but changed my mind thankfully.

The doll was a gift from my sister to my daughter.

Love the light, but I'm concerned that if you really leave her permamently in the window the UV rays will seriously degrade both the colors and the materials consider putting some filtering plastic or something in the window as protection.

Congratulations on the ribbon!

A beautiful dolly, nicely positioned in the light and the image is beautifully toned. Top three.

Simple idea, nicely shot. perhaps if you were to draw attention to the cute little face or delicate hair the image might be a little more eye catching. As is its pretty but static. (7)

Pretty pic. I could see this on a book cover or in a magazine. Is it a tad overblown? Just a little maybe. But still like it.

I like all of this... but wish it were taken from a lower point of view... more like a child's level.

Lovely, though... lovely.
