I've asked this question on other forums today and generally the question has gone down well. However a few have refused to play the game, instead replying 'why should it matter whether it's cool or not', or 'what a shallow question to ask'. I was even accused of behaving like a 12 year old girl for asking the question on one flickr forum.

I did not find your question shallow or light-hearted. I would ask the very same question if I were looking for an interesting prop to include in a motion picture or glamour shot.
