Thanks everyone for all the votes and great comments. :)

Contrary to what many people (members here and friends at home) thought was a nude figure, either male or female, in the background, it fortunately is not. That is me lying in the background (shirtless) with my Southpark pajamas on and believe me, you should all be thankful that I'm not nude...lol.

I knew I wouldn't be able to compete with all you photogs with all your fancy lighting so on the morning before the deadline, I came up with this idea. I picked up a mug and 6 pack of Miller lite from Walmart and took this shot in my apartment. And no, the beers didn't go to waste. It was nice to have an excuse to drink a 6 pack of beer at 9am...I did it in the name of art. :)

This had one of my highest votes. Brilliant, real and fresh (including the beer - that could be the only flaw in the story :-).

This reminds me of Joey Lawrence's first entry here, and on a number of levels let alone subject matter: it's raw and real and straight to the point.

And you've taught me something - I didn't know about Miller's Punch Top Can, now I feel back in the beer-loop.

Hopefully you didn't waste the prop!

Great idea!! Although there'd never be a full beer mug left :)

Trailer Park? But you are using a mug. That's not trailer park! :)

I'm intrigued with the nude in the BG. Fotomann? It's DMC but perhaps not as impact-full as some of the entries.
