Literally took the dirt out of the vaccuum cleaner, arranged it in a bunny shape, added a cottonball tail and put the dustpan behind it for context. *Extremely* silly, but fun.

Lit with a lamp off to one side and onboard flash.

PP - cropped, levels, converted to duotone, cloned/burnt/dodged to emphasize bunny shape a bit more, resized, sharpened slightly, reduced noise

Fun and creative. Is that a dust pan in the background? I missed it the first time, consider either eliminating it or showing more of it so that it is more recognizable.

Cute idea. The composition is nice, although I'm not sure about that large bright line at the top. Maybe a little less dark so we can have more texture to the dirt. 5

A very funny idea, but needs better lighting and context to give it depth. There's no way to tell what that light colored thing is, and I'm just assuming that the dark stuff is carpet.

Sometimes I think that's what my sensor looks like.

Cute idea. Like "Boogers", every body gets them, nobody loves them. No wonder the little feller looks so sad.

I don't think this technically dirt, but I don't think my picture meets the challenge either.

If the background were a solid color this would have looked better IMO.

ROFL - with 3 long haired dogs and a long haired cat, I can certainly relate. 7
