I couldn't believe it when I saw a 1909 S in this good condition in this picture. I waited to see your description to find out if it was real. The rarest Lincoln cent there is, and you put it on the ground ... cringe! I kind of disagree with the other comments, though; yes, the cigarette butt and matchstick are unattractive, but that's the point.

I don't understand the purpose of the match and cigarrette butt in this shot.

Ouch... I really like the idea and the colors... but the placement of the matchstick, cigarette, and penny does not work. I think this would have been much better if the matchstick and cigarette's paths created an intersecting line
