    Congrats - One of my top picks. Happy to hear you were not arrested and that the dolly has been resuscitated LOL

    Many congrats on a well deserved win :-)

    Congrats, this was my #2. I found it so sad, it almost made me cry.

    Thank you all for your votes and comments. This was set up of course. If the society for Prevention of Cruelty to Dolls had caught me I would be in the clink. First I drowned her in the creek and took various photos of her floating or caught on rocks or branches. On the way back to the car I dropped her into the leaves then tossed some leaves over her.
Happily she has cleaned up well - in the washing machine!

    Congratulations again - First and third. Great idea, beautifully rendered.

    This one pulls at my heart strings aided by an excellent title. it instantly reminded me of the 'When Somebody Loved Me' from Toy story 2 (sniff). Maybe a little lighter vignette would have been ideal but I think it will be in with a shout for the win. GL.

    Very nice - love the color and the lighting.

    Nice take and processing.

    Nicely lit, but I feel the vignette is too much... Should be much less and more feathered. Without your title, I would have struggled to draw a connection, but seeing that you did, I must say that I do get some emotion from this. The leaves, although is a nice touch photographically and well captured, doesn't add much to the story. Unless a kid was left out camping when the parents left. BTW I like your idea. Maybe a suggestion, to place the doll in the road ' driveway, get down low and capture the exiting road would have highlighted ... Somebody has left without the title. Anyway, in my favourites.

    Perfect for the theme of this challenge. It evokes a sense of sadness and/or loneliness. Well done and nicely executed.

May 8, 2016
    Nice lighting and the vignette works well here.

May 7, 2016
    nice photo, good lighting like the vignette.

May 7, 2016
    This is a little bit of a cliche, but the lighting is very well done and I love the fact that She's surrounded by leaves, very sad

    Looks like the cabbage patch doll has returned to her roots. Great composition and detail. The vignette is a really nice way to focus in on the subject. It's easy to pick up on the feeling of abandonment.

    Wonderful entry. This image with its title evoked most amount of emotion among all the entries. Very high in my TT.

    Great idea for the theme and nice colours. The doll looks well loved, and should be retrieved before the challenge is over. In my TT.
