I've been doing horribly of late with my challenge entries, and was going to sit out the next few until I got real inspired. ...Well, temptation got the best of me when my wife happened upon this old toy commode she had as a little girl.

Being an open challenge, I only did some minor tweaking of color, auto levels, and usm. I'll probably get dinged for the border, but I liked it better that way.

Thanks for looking, voting and/or commenting.

This is 10 times better than the top 3 images in this challenge. More creative and more artistic and more thought-provoking than the other three.

I predict a ribbon. This illustrates the catagory and is clean,humorous and well composed.

What a cute picture! It meets the challenge perfectly. The focus and lighting are great. The emphasis does seem to be on the toilet paper rather than on the tiny toilet though. Perhaps if the more direct light had been on the toilet it would have made it the main object in the picture.

Pretty clear shot. Intereating. The frame of the red flower gives it a good touch of colour and the huge penile looking (stamen?) I think is as humourous as the large roll & small toilet. Pretty good contrast. Maybe could have been a tad brighter, but then you may have been worried the top of the roll would become a bit over-exposed.
