One of my first photo's ( when picking up photography as a hobby). Near a hippy community, someone collects these dolls in a disorderly fashion. Seems like something terrible has happened.

Not a beautiful image but an interesting one and a little scary, the disorder you talk about must have been in the hippy's mind. I would like to put a smiley with tears but there is none so since it's not making me smile in spite of the quite unusual and interesting subject a pale green one for you.

No, it's not beautiful, that's for sure, it's like doll mass murder, definitely a very creepy shot, and a haunting image, it didn't make me smile either but I give this a full smiley.

The others are right, this photo reeks with morbidity; but what a capture. Well composed and very expressive.

Looks like a still from a horror movie. Good shot but I think it would have even more impact with a little closer crop -- get rid of the foot at the upper left and try to close in so you can't tell there's a house or building up there.

A very disturbing picture (and I meant that in a nicest way). I like the composition, particulary the hanging foot on top.

Kind of like the Plastic Doll's Pompeii. I would try a shallower DOF to try and blur out the background. I bet this has Chuckie spinning in his grave. ;)

It's a nice shot, with a dramatic tension wich gives me a real emotion.
I'm just disturbed by the wall and window in the left top corner.

A good subject, and well taken.

I'm with 'md' on this one. Try cropping off a bit of the top, just enough so that the building isn't so obviously a building.
Also crop off just enough from the right to turn the fence into a cross.

As creepy as it is, I bet I wouldn't have walked by without trying a photo, either. It's like the Beatles' infamous "butcher cover", sans meat.
Well caught, but I may not want a print of this on my wall. ;)

I remembered the movie character "Chucky" when I saw these dolls. Well I hope these are not Chuckies otherwise the ones who did these would fear a lot. Very interesting photo!
