Hey diddle diddle,
the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Made feet and hands out of polymer clay pressed into a mold. Used pipe cleaners for legs and arms. Hung from a pipe with fishing line which I cloned out.

Also cloned out itty bitty bits of tape peaking out from behind that was used to hold on arms and string.

Just got back from vacation to see this wonderful gift of a second place ribbon. Thanks all for voting!

Love this shot. Glad you got a ribbon with it. It made me chuckle and marvel at your creativity. Also sent me straight back to my childhood. Clever, and well executed!

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Hello! Now honestly, what am I supposed to add to a red ribbon? LOL! :)

I loved the idea, the concept and the colors, the execution of the idea. All very well done. The only thing that bothered me about this shot personally was the angle of the table, it does work for this shot but it was a bit too steep for my personal taste but then again, the voters have spoken and my taste didn't count, LOL :)

Congrats!

The reflections of the feet is what does it for me in this photograph. Bet on a top 5 finish at least. Pray do tell how this was set up. 10

Fantastic take on the challenge. NIce composition. Overall it is looking rather dull.... a bit of a tweak in Curves would fix that. 8
