Bonkers, I love it; great imagination and execution. The mono conversion is very good too.

Thanks guys,

it was a fun shoot as well. Had to put the scales on bricks to get it high enough to slip the camera with fisheye beneath. Used the self timer to trigger (IR remote doesn't work with wireless flash). The time was enough, though, to climb back on the scales and look distraught.

Very very clever!

I was thinking more along the lines of a foot size reduction

No no, my feet are the right size, I just have the head of a midget...
Come to think of it: When I look at my avatar it has been different in the past.

This is one of the best images I have ever seen. Brilliant.

If you don't win anything else for this, you have won my admiration.

Again, brilliant.
