Cool shot! Miniatures are so cool. I always wonder what it is that makes the eye think that something's not quite right in a miniature shot. In the Superman films it was those stupid water disaster shots which never look good in miniature, even in slow motion. I think here what caught my eye is that the rims of the teacups look to thick, and the handle on the teapot is a bit larger and smooth... other than that I can't put my finger on it. Nice work.
