I thought about this challenge and it occurred to me after eating breakfast. This was the setup.

This took place in my living room if it isn't obvious to you because I don't have a studio or studio lighting or equipment. This is my pet monster sitting behind the make-shift dining table and plate setting... not an easy thing to do. My girlfriend and I had the model follow our hands with a treat so we can have the look as I focus on the Prada shoe. Took a few snaps, got the model to smile, turn a different cheek, chin up and down... and that's a wrap.

Other titles considered:
"Prada A La Mode", "Anti Pasto", "Italian for Diner", "Fine Dining for Under $200 a piece", "Italian Leather Makes Fine Dining",

I really dig this image a lot but IMHO it should have been sharp all the way through.

I find the sheets covering everything to be distracting from an otherwise perfect set up.

If DPC had a ribbon for "most humorous" it would be your turn. Love it !!

Love your concept love the angle and the wide angle lens look, but your background ruins this for me. Instead of using a wrinkled sheet draped over your couch, you could have set it up in the kitchen so it would have look natural. Background is so important! Even if your main subject is awsome, if your background is not your shot will only be ok. I would have given a 10 if you background was better. A 7 seems fitting since you concept and subject are wonderful

Great pic, but I'd title it 'Am I grown up enough for this one, dad?'
