For me it's the electric guitar. I have seen very few images anywhere that I think "wow, that's good!" Normally just looks like an awkward looking model who has been given a dead fish to cuddle.
What do other people think?

I disagree, Gerry got the Elvis Costello vibe right with the first shot and even if the second shot isn't quite as good, it's still an imaginatively styled and posed shot.

The real "Most overused prop" has got to be a wall. See how many shots there are on Purestorm where the model is standing close up one.

Yes, well overused. Guys with them form 95% of the shots on Purestorm. wink
