Thank you all! After taking a short break, I came back with my first BLUE!! :)

When I read the title of this challenge, this shot immediately came to mind. Partially because I have had many mornings just like this one in college....

I wanted to give the photo a foggy look, to convey the hangover feeling of "After the Party", and the liquid in the shot glasses is actually tea. I took the picture mid-day during the week and wasn't willing to have my bathroom smelling like Jack Daniels (though, it is my drink of choice)...

Many of us have been there! I like the greenish cast of light which can depict exactly how one can feel in the stomach "after the party". JD is my drink of choice also but he can be very mean at times.

WD on the Blue!
ETA: After reading ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Giles_uk's take I feel more at ease saying this. I also thought most of the shots were shoe horns. This is just masterfully shot and deserves the win.

Very nice, the lady in the background "hugging the porcelain queen" really brings home the theme.

Woowww!!. This shot is just superb. My complete favourite for this challenge (10). The glasses, the Jack Daniels's, the girl... specially the light on the girl's leg, head and shoulder, i't so nice!. I'm adding this photo to my favourites. I hope to see it on the top

I imagined there's be a lot of praying to the porcelain god images. Thank you for making subtler than most.

The cross processed look works well here. To me, it kind of adds to the fuzzy/hangover effect.
