Very clever. Very topical.

I disagree with other commenters about the editing of the shot and the "grainy" look - I love it. It sort of makes me think of a cameraphone photo or a CCTV shot, just right for the subject matter.

This is worthy of a blue ribbon.

The toe-tapping antics of Larry Craig are pretty big news, don't be surprised that some people outside of the US will get the reference. I did, and I laughed :)

Oh, this ROCKS! I wonder whether you lost some votes from non-Americans who don't know the reference?

Wow!, I'm pretty impressed with my first try. In brainstorming for this challenge I knew I wanted to do something different, the idea came easy, however going into a public bathroom on Valentines Day in a popular hotel didn't make things easy. I finally got about a 2 minute window in which the bathroom was empty so it had to be fast, imagine the looks if people walked in and there I am with a camera pointed under the stalls.

The International community at DPC may not get this 100%, but for those familiar with this "subject" it's hilarious - and well photographed! The grainy, high contrast, feel of this is right on the mark. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

I like the noisy, journo style of this one but perhaps for the same reasons it would have worked better in B&W?
