Deep in the forest, in a clearing hard to find, six magical little elves cavort around their elegant, comfy, quirky home.

UPDATE: Replaced the background altogether.
UPDATE #2: Added fantasy effect, explained in SBS.

Many thanks to:
Krappweis for the forest (new)
juliaf for the elf
Northampton Museums Service for the satin button boot
roarofthefour for the Victorian House
cindyfunk for the window South Fountain (5 years and 1298 days ago)

Very fun shoe choice. While converting a shoe into a home (a la the Old Woman who lived in a shoe) might not be that original, this home is very charming and realistic. However, I think the figures, among other elements, could cast stronger shadows plus the shoe could have greater contrast so it is even more clearly the focal point as required by the contest.

Very nice image with loads of positive energy...IMHO there is not much things to fix just maybe just slight blurring edges of the home/shoe cause in high resolution, especially with the zoom its visible difference between resolution of the background and the rest of the image...any how i like this image and i wish u best of luck author

Fun image! (Please fix link 2).

author says:

Thanks, CMYK. I fixed the link.

Does anyone else have trouble with random extra spaces inserting themselves into copy-and-pasted URLs? It actually happens to me quite a bit...

Fabulous work, author. Great find on the Victorian boots, and 'painted lady'. I like that you warped the porch pieces, it adds to the whimsy.
