Another last minute entry. Yes, the composition could be better and it's not especially appealing to look at, but the idea was funny (at least to me).

Taken with a 420ex flash bounced off a reflector held above the scene to my right. Processing was minimal- crop, levels, USM and a slight saturation boost.

WIth all models you have at your disposal, it's hard to keep track!

LOL- if you hadn't made me so darn self-conscious about having hands in my shots, my last entry (True Grit) would have had one, too. ;-P

Me too, but the hand gave it away. I was gonna say "Looks like a scalvert" during the challenge :D but I didn't vote.

Nice photo. You should have taken off the fork at the top since it destracts attention .

This can very true good choice. Nicely focused pictures fits the challenge, angle of shot covers the theme. Very simple and just the right amount of white balance.

truly one of my favorites in this challenge...aside from my own shot ;-) One of the few that actually does depict a decision without forcing it in the title!! Clever idea!!

This is a very creative take on the challenge.

I don't feel that the image conveys instantly recognizable decision. I had to think about it for a moment. The title helps it along, but I think that the pic would have been better if I got the feeling right away of the dilema. Nice pic.
