    So I took a close-up photo of one of my shelf displays, and I like it as a desktop background, so I thought I'd share. It's of Universe Ratbat, Springer, Roadbuster(with Natobot upgrade & modding!), Dirge, and Classics Roddimus with G1's Gun. Coments and crits welcome.

    EDIT: I forgot, Cybertron Sideways is in there too. :D

    I attached two more pics, as per request, to give a bit more context as to what's going on in the scene. I don't consider them as "art-y" as the first one, though.

    Personally, I see what you're going for in the original posted photo, but I think this is an instance where medium doesn't match the message. I REALLY like your composition and your intended message, but I think it would work better as an illustration. I think it would work EXCEPTIONALLY well as a heavy-shadowed, black-and-white illustration, much like a comic book cover. That being said, when I draw TFs, I like to have the said TF(s) in hand while I'm drawing and perhaps a photo to serve as a preliminary sketch to my full illustration.

    Anyways, those are my thoughts, and I hope they're helpful :)
