Had to dust off some of my childhood collectibles for this Challenge. This was a lot of fun since it isn't very often that I get to play with toys now days;) For setup i used a brown towel, lichen, and models with a colored background.

8 Second exposure with a flashlight from above and shop lamp lighting the background.

Feels like I just stepped back in time. I love the sepia feel... old and tired landscape. One of my favorites!

Very nice, I like it.

Nice scene, good browns on show here. Could stand to be a little crisper perhaps.

The tones and processing really make this work. Nice job!

Very sweet!

Not quite sure this is what they had in mind... Lighting makes the scene looks flat as well...

I like your old-style treatment here... but ulimately, haven't you just taken a photo of a toy?

Very nice; almost like a postcard.

I like your composition. I wonder how this would look in black in white to give it an even greater old time feel.

very good set and nice sepia-ish tone to the shot, like that everything's in proportion. 7

the overall sepia tones really lend themselves to the 'old time' feel of this image ... nice job

Lovely set up and I like how used sepia tones to give an olden look. I just think composition wise could be improved just by following the rule of thirds a bit more. I don't penalise shots that I like tho so 9
