Mini figures on my cellphone, on a mirror, backlit. A bit of a shoehorn since I'm not using real people but we'll see how it goes.

Love your take on that trite old phrase! And it probably is exactly what they're doing, too.

I like this one. Can see it generating revenue on a stock site if you did a series using this theme (miniature people with office objects)

Great photo. Congrats on the red.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Congratulations Karen, I like this shot very much. While I'm usually not fond of plain white backgrounds, I think it works very well on your picture due to a clever use of silhouettes, greatly done!
Also this is not a shoehorn at all, it fits the challenge perfectly :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2010 12:58:47 AM
Karen, congratulations on your ribbon! great idea and it's meaningful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2010 12:57:13 AM
Congratulations, Karen. This is your best little people shot yet, and far from being a shoehorn, it's perfect for this. It is perfect technically as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2010 12:41:10 AM
This is just so perfect for the challenge, love it! Congrats, Karen ((Hugs)).
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Karen, congratulations not only on your ribbon but on such a well executed shot .. you are getting to be the master of photographing the little people figures.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2010 12:30:03 AM
See, I told you in the pre-challenge discussion that you would ribbon. I knew this would do well when I first saw it. We both didn't do shabby for a shoehorn and a gag entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2010 12:15:24 AM
Congratulations! Very well thought & executed !

Great photo, it, well, kinda fits your title. I think this was a bit of a conceptual stretch, but it's a really, really nice image.

hehe - otherwise i like the individuality of the concept and the clean execution.

This photo demonstrates a very creative, imaginative, and interesting approach.....great job! Photo is shown in un-expected way, and the focal point is clear....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2010 08:38:39 AM
Cute! Without the title, I don't think people would get the joke, so it probably wouldn't do super well at a stock site.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2010 04:09:34 AM
Excellent idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2010 03:47:47 AM
Nice idea, would work very well on stock I guess.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2010 12:33:41 AM
The phone even LOOKS like a shoehorn Karen. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2010 12:04:31 AM
