Extremely creative take on the challenge! I absolutely love this shot.long. I'mnot exactly sure how I feel about the border, but I don't believe it really detracts from the image in anyway. I love the clarity and I love the humor. Many wishes!

Creative idea fairly well executed. I find the twigs distracting.

Interesting idea, nice shot. Composition is a little bit busy.

good image, good idea. I don't like the frame, I think it distracts, but I don't vote on frames. nice job.

Cute. You could have saved yourself the trouble of the little flags in the background though, they distract from your clever idea.

To busy in back ground, deflecting the subject.

Hope no one was injured here...Like any paper dolls!

Hi there. After looking at this for two days....yes, paper plane in a fire. It just doesn't spark interest. I think technically the shot is fine. Your weakness is the composition. The activity in the background is a distraction. Good luck to you in the challenge.

good idea, but the composition is a bit messy, could have been kept simpler, stronger.

Nice approach, make a little story around it (you don't see that alot here). Frame is also good on this type of shot. Nice

Nice idea, but why isn't the plane burning? Would have been stronger without the 'set' elements.
