An impromptu photo of Clara (Blemt on DPC) sorting through a menu at The Brickskeller restaurant in Wahsington DC during. The choices of beer on this menu were over 700 :) The 'choice' in this photo will likely be misunderstood since the salt and pepper are in the forefront of the image. This photo is not much more than a simple shot with my Canon S500 digital camera. It's quite fun to play with :)

I think you may have been too subtle for this site ;-D I got the idea right away. This was one of my higher ranking photos for this challenge. I like the choice of focusing on the salt and pepper in the foreground. I would have scored higher but on my monitors (both Apples) the foreground looked quite a bit underexposed.

I don't get it.

The title throws me, but the shot is cool. Maybe being able to see more background would help.

A little too dark and underexposed for my tastes. Appears to be a bit grainy too.

If I had not looked for Brickskeller on the internet I would have had no clue about this photo... Like it though and the IMO intentional grain...
