My little rat Calypso is the model for this shot. Toilet roll tubes were the only thing on hand when I finally decided to enter this challenge, so with very little time to spare I set them up and got my fella John to set her behind them and encourage her to run through a tube, which she did 'cause she's fantastic. :-) Wish I'd not bothered with the sellotape to hold the tubes together as I think it's kinda visible, oh well! I expect this to bomb since the rat is more the main subject than the garbage.

Editing: Cropped, adjusted brightness/contrast using levels, denoised, lowered the master saturation a bit, sharpened and resized.

Funny and cute, but it's essentially a copy of a ribbon winner from Garbage 2... still, a good shot.
