In a contest last month, popular art blog Booooooom.com called for submission from readers asking them to recreate classical work of art using photography. Scores of people stepped up to the challenge, restaging iconic paintings by artists like Leonardo DaVinci, Sandro Botticelli and Van Gogh. Some took great pains to create the scenes paying attention to the very last detail, while others opted to modernize the classics. Some remakes are breathtaking while others are humorous.

The contest concluded last week and the submissions gallery here is one of the most worth looking pages on the Internet, right now. Here are some of my favorites.
