Carved up a raw potato and placed it in my daughter's dollhouse. The potato was picked specifically so I could carve a highback couch, however, the way it follows the curve of the window was pure luck.

I think the contrasts could be enhanced a little and the lighting improved, but this is a very creative entry.

This is sooooo clever! I love it. I think it could have been lightened some, but still is great. That must have taken some time.....making a couch potato. :) 8

very creative and well executed, the line of the potato echos the curve at the bottom of the window, and the sections on the couch, you paid attention to detail

LOL! You must have been saving this potato just for this occasion, or you may have spent a lot of time looking to find the right shape! What a super idea and even better that it's shot in a doll house

Very good idea. Colors could get a bit of level boosting.

VERY funny. Very clever. Photographically, I would like to have seen some more contrast or lighting on the couch itself, and a noncentered composition (Personally, I think the potatoe speaks for itself without being the center of the composition) but the idea is fantastic. Now why didn't I think of that ;)

I like that you even carved cushions into your couch! I like the curve behind the potato mmicking its shape. But I think It would have stood out better if the potato were spot-lit, the background is distracting with the pink and flowers.

Cute. Creative.

Now that's a groaner! And I love it! You must have even more spare time than I do! Very clever :)

This is very clever, I like it! It's hilarious and thought provoking at the same time. Hrm, it's a tad dark maybe, but that's about the only negative thing I can say about it. The location you've put it in is great (even managed to get a cat in the shot too!), the symmetry is good, the colors are good, I like how the back of the 'couch' mimics the shape of the arch in the back. Well crafted, thought, and executed.

haha, this is a riot! Great idea and sense of humor!
My only suggestion would be to brighten things up a little, the lighting situation is a little dull. Even if you just brightened it up in PS, I think it would help.
