This shot has some great potential. Jacks was one of the toys I thought might make a good entry when I read the challenge description. I like what youíve done with the upper background. Itís clean and uncluttered. I donít care much for the reflections on the glass. I understand that the wooden monkey is playing the game, but Iím not sure he or the container is adding interest to the overall shot for me. I actually think if you had taken an extreme close-up of the jacks with maybe a half or third of the ball showing in the shot it might have made a stellar black and white shot worth hanging on the wall in a play room or something. I hope you are not offended by my comment here. One of the things Iíve learned as a photographer is that if you place 10 fantastic photographers in a room and ask them all to shoot the same flower; you will usually end up with 10 fantastic shots of the flower, none of which are the same. With that thoughtÖ I hope some of my ramblings here are helpful to you in some way. Good Luck in the Challenge!

that's a scary-looking gorilla woody! Hope he had fun with the jacks. Wondering if a lower pov would make this shot stronger, or at least kill the reflection.
