It took quite a bit of time for this shot. First i had to construct the backdrop/foreground out of a big piece of paper then i glued a bunch of peas on and had to wait a day or so before it was dry. Then i set up the lighting by putting a flash of to the left. And then finally i got the shot with my very uncopritive mouse after probally half an hour.

Awwww. . .I love it! Nice touch putting the cute little mouse in there. I wonder if he loved the peas :) I hope so. He deserves a treat for being such a cute model, huh? 10

oh my goodness. what you won't do for a photo!

push those whites in the peas please - more saturation would make that green background stronger too I think

I like the idea and the lighting. I think I would have liked a deeper DOF. very cute.

Adorable and unique. Lighting, focus and composition is great!

I'm sure I've seen that mouse before somewhere! This is coming up a bit dark on my monitor, but a fun idea and good composition.

cute idea. Lighting could have been a little better, escpecially in the shadows.

Wonderful capture. The lighting is perfect. I wonder how many tries this took you or did the mouse pose?

Sweet idea let down for me by lighting/ exposure.

I like the narrow DOF, but I would have liked the peas to be a bit lighter.

This was such a weird challenge...

Better lighting would have made this a stunner.

not much focus on the peas but nice rat. :-)
